Ives Cast Iron Toy - Fire Patrol WagonIves Cast Iron Toy - Fire Patrol Wagon

Early and Impressive Horse & Buggy Era fire-fighting wagon measuring slightly over 21" in length in very good estate condition made by founder Edward R. Ives' Bridgeport, CT high quality toy manufacturing business in the late 19th century. These came in both a one-horse and two-horse version. This is the two-horse Patrol. The toy's name "Phoenix" is embossed on the top of the pull rail, "Fire Patrol" is cast on both sides of the wagon. The driver and six other fireman are original. One poor soul is missing half of his head. A hinge top tool box rear bumpers the wagon. Original horses are in harmonizing colors of white and black. Paint appears to be all original with typical wear and fading consistent to an unrestored folk art quality toy in beautiful original surface. Has that WOW factor when seen in person.
