This is a charming and unusual collection box distributed by the RSPCA sometime in the early to mid-1950s.

The box is small and cuboidal in shape, with a stepped base. The top is painted red and has a small slit for the insertion of coins. To the right of this is a stylised black and white cat, although this is quite worn.

The body is decorated with a paper layer to form a stylised brick wall. On one side, it reads ‘PLEASE HELP THE R.S.P.C.A.’ On the reverse, it reads ‘ISSUED ON BEHALF OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS, 105 JERMYN STREET, LONDON, S.W.1 TEL: WHITEHALL 7177’.

The base bears the remains of the paper label which would have covered over the opening to prevent it being tampered with.

It has a maximum height of approximately 15.9cm, with a width of about 10.3cm and a depth of about 7.8cm.

It is in worn condition but is an unusual example as many of these items did not survive.
