About catalog YuBank.ru

In Russia, the accumulation of money was closely connected with the need to protect savings from theft. Therefore, the first boxes for storing and transporting money - the prototypes of modern safes - were made of boards and were bound with steel strips to give additional strength. Also, people often used small wooden boxes with a lid at an angle to the base. At night, such piggy banks took up space at the head of the owner, which served as an additional guarantee of security.
