It is drawn by two gilded white horses with red painted gold capped drivers leading a large red wagon with harps and lion heads and yellow spoke wheels, loaded with 8 instrument playing men, and led by a master driver. Measures approximately 16" long by over 7" tall.
In excellent condition with typical signs of wear for a vintage toy... Namely some small chips of the enamel paint.
In addition, one of the small wheels on the left horse is missing. Please check the photos to evaluate this piece further for yourself. I will be delighted when this "regal toy" finds a new home, as we downsize and move into a senior community. That will make saying "goodby and thanks for the memories" a bit less painful.The Kenton (Ohio) Hardware Company later renamed the Kenton Toy Co. Was founded in 1890 and promoted as "the largest factory in the USA exclusively making cast iron toys" at the turn of the 20th century. By the time it closed its doors in 1952, it had manufactured close to 10,000 designs of cast-iron toys.
