Antique wooden advertising toy milk cart and horse. This is a rarely found, all original cart from the early 1900's. Sheffield Farms was arguably the largest distributor of milk in New York City. In 1893 in New Jersey, Sheffield Farms opened the first pasteurization plant in the country, well ahead of its competitors. Sheffield Farms had their main plant on 125th Street in Manhattan, where people could view the milk being processed and bottled. This is a miniature version of one of their horse drawn carts that delivered milk city wide until the late 1930's. In excellent condition, possibly original string that pulls the horse, and the front axle moves freely, allowing the horse and cart to be displayed in many ways. 21 inches long, 9.25 inches high, 6.375 wide.
