A Kenton horse drawn stake wagon with two horses, one white, the other black, driven by a yellow painted man mounted on a Kenton blue stake wagon. We suspect that this toy represents very late production for the firm in the early 1950s, although it had been produced for many years during the firm's lifetime. The condition is excellent with only minor soiling or paint wear.
Regarding the condition of the paint, we admit that we thought it was repainted given the lusterless matte finish...
Cast iron horse drawn sulky attributed to Shimer, Son & Company, a small toy manufacturer from the 1890s to no later than 1920. This sulky is nickel plated and all one piece. Condition is good with about 25+% finish loss, some rust on the horse particularly on butt and head, wheels are wobbly. Shimer is a hard to find maker and this example has all of the wonderful qualities of turn of the century toys.
Dimension: 6 1/4" l
This antique cast iron horse drawn fire truck consists of a horse drawing a water pumper driven by a fireman molded into his seat. The toy c. 1900 - 10 and attributed to Shimer, Son & Company, a small Pennsylvania toy firm which was active from the 1890s to perhaps as late as 1920. The underside is embossed with 1075, presumably a model number. This model is nickel plated.
The condition is good, having around 20-25% paint loss, wobbly wheels, two of which are missing hub caps...
A super nice vintage shooter marble with white base and aventurine and oxblood patches. No defects.
An orange painted cast iron wagon with nickle wheel and pull, embossed with Express Flyer on the two long sides of the wagon. This toy is an excellent specimen of a somewhat hard to find category and is in very good shape with about 90-95% of its original paint intact. The nickle palated areas have corroded to a significant degree as has the pull. Nonetheless, the condition is well above average...
One of Kenton's marquee product lines was its Overland Circus which featured numerous horse drawn vehicles of which we have perhaps the most coveted, the Overland Circus Band Wagon. It is drawn by two gilded white horses with red painted gold capped drivers leading a large red wagon with harps and lion heads, all loaded with 8 intrument playing men, and led by a master driver. The arms on the band members are articulated allowing modest movement...
Although its longevity in the toy business was a few short years from 1882-92, the Shepard Hardware Company had an impact far beyond its size, receiving patents for 15 banks, many of which have become classics of the genre, including the one we present here, the Jolly Nigger for which the company received its first mechanical bank patent on March 14, 1882...
This exciting horse drawn fire engine is clearly in a race against time, but the timelessness of this toy endures. It features a single horse pulling a fire pumper driven by a single fireman. We believe that the paint may be from a very old repaint job but it has, ironically, protected it from rust. The right rear wheel is missing a cap and all wheels are wobbly.
The interior wall under the driver's seat is embossed 1075...
Cast iron Eagle Bank in original nearly pristine condition. The bank features a mother eagle perched on a rock overlooking her two eaglets in their nest, ready to feed them when activated by the back lever which works well. The underside is marked Pat Jan 23 1888. We rarely come across cast iron banks this state of fine preservation. The only minor paint losses are around the black base. This bank is an antique show piece.
