Antique Cast Iron Toy - Horse Drawn Fire Engine

There are a number of cast iron toys on the collectibles market today, and unfortunately, many of them are reproductions. Back in the early 1970's, I mistakenly purchased several myself in my quest for the authentic playthings from yesteryear. Once I found the "real thing" the differences were so glaringly apparent, when they were set side by side. I am as confident as I can be that this is an authentic old toy. I had given this one to my father, who grew up in the early 1900's and he likewise believed this was like the ones he played with. I gave away the "fakes" years ago , or I would post their pictures also.

This is a really great old Fire Engine, pulled by two horses and manned by a helmeted fireman. It is intact, with no breaks, damage or missing pieces. Aside from the worn away areas of paint, it is in exceptionally nice condition. There are no manufacturer's marks on the toy anywhere that I have been able to find.

The engine and horses measure 9-1/2 inches long from the back of the wheels to the front hoofs of the horses. The Engine stands 3-1/2 inches high and the horses are 2-5/8 inches tall.

I do not claim to be an authority on much of anything, so I offer no guarantees. However, I will never intentionally misrepresent any item as to its age or authenticity. If I know an item is a replica I clearly state it as such. I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
