Rare Carpenter Cast Iron Horse Drawn Fire Ladder Wagon
This is a scarce cast iron two-horse Capenter Fire Ladder Wagon - a rare toy. This is from the late 1800s. It measures a large 26" long. This is a really nice looking piece. Is all original, but I believe (?) the two figures are cast iron replacements, and the yellow ladder on the top is an original ladder, but I don't think the correct one for this piece (looks good though). The back wheels appear to be a different color red, but you can see the correct color is underneath. These are probably just extra dirty from the 100 years of age. I have not tried to clean them. The red ladders are original Carpenter ladders, which are hard to find. One, however, has one broken rung, and is a little shorter. I believe the pictures tell the rest. A great overall look to a rare cast iron toy. Please ask any questions. This week I'm offering a couple of rare early cast iron horse drawn pieces. Buyer pays shipping. (Insurance is included in the shipping and handling fees for an estimate of $800). Please check out my other items currently listed, and save on shipping.
