The B.B. Billosaur Accepts No Coins and Only Notes

The use of the B.B. Billosaur appreciates the importance of putting away paper money as savings and not just small change. The peculiar-looking porcelain vessel has been punctured with several circular holes, intended to be stuffed with rolled bills.

The openings are actually too tiny to allow the insertion of hard change, making this piece a vault for the specific storage of fives, tens, twenties, fifties and hundreds. American users are afforded the means to start with smaller sums from 1 dollar bills, but the rest may find that this odd egg-shaped container is a higher earner than your typical piggy bank.

Different still, George Lee of le Mouton Noir & Co. modeled the B.B. Billosaur imaginatively on a baby dinosaur. It has a belly button, feet and a spine of seven corked holes that lines its back.
