Early 1900's Cast Iron Horse Drawn Hook & Ladder Fire Truck - Prob. Dent/kenton :
For your consideration, we are offering a cast ironhook and ladder fire truck, most probably manufactured by either Dent or Kenton, sometime in the early 1900's. It's a rather large piece,measuring 25 1/4" long x 8" high (to the top of the ladder supports), and as is evident from the pictures, it retains most of its original paintand is in remarkably good condition considering its age. It should be noted that the yoke has a break midway between the horses (though it does hold together thanks to a male-female junction), but there appears to be no other damage. Also, the firemen figures are replacements (one of them has no peg so does not stay on the seat), and one or both of the ladders may likewise be replacements. Please do check the photos as those are intended to supplement and add to the description, and let me know if you have any questions or need additional information as I strive to insure a smooth transaction.

A very helpful shopper has pointed out that this hook and ladder truck is indeed made by Kenton, but the front hitch and horses are by Wilkins Toy Co.
