Thrift has been making a serious comeback lately, so the piggy bank seems poised for a revival. But we may still have a few kinks to work out…

This porcelain coin bank puts a refined (if somewhat goth) face on the practice of saving change, but there’s a slight problem. For one, it will run your tab up almost $300. And for another, if you ever plan on getting those coins back, you’ll have to smash poor Yorick to pieces. Since the headpiece only holds about fifty bucks in coins, we’re projecting a $250 shortfall.

Maybe regular banks aren’t so bad after all.
