The Bear Dam Troll Bank was distributed under the Norfin brand name. The name given to this bank was quite simply “Bear” style # 450 as designated on the Norfin hang tag.
The eyes are gold and it is marked Thomas Dam on the side of the foot. This Dam troll bank stands about 6 3/4 inches tall which is just a little taller than Pig Dam troll bank. These animal troll banks were made in the 1980’s or early 1990’s.
The Bear came with the Norfin hang tag and a plastic white key. The key was very small and quite easily lost. Luckily the keys for all the Norfin Dam Troll animal banks were the same so if you have one key then it will open any of the animal banks. Obviously if you have the key, then the bank is worth more money
The Bear dam troll is made of a vinyl plastic material and bank plug is a black plastic. It is hard to find and are quite adorable looking. The last one on Ebay was selling for around $85 without the key and it had obviously been used.
