Product Overview

Swan Cart Cast Iron Pull Toy. A Limited Edition Victorian Toy. Swan's head moves back and forth, and driver bumps up and down as if riding on a bumpy road as the toy is pulled across the floor. I have not personally ridden in a swan cart, but it appears the Victorians thought this to quit the fun thing to contemplate. Pull toys were the most engaging and popular of Victorian toys. Most of the cast iron pull toys were produced between 1890 and 1910 in the Northeastern United States. These exclusive faithful reproductions were made in quantities of 600 each in 1985. About half of these were sold at the time, and D. Lawless purchased the balance of the stock. There have been none made since. We have sold these on a limited basis to collectors until now. Our stock is not large. Originals sell for thousands of dollars. Now is your chance to enjoy a little bit of toy history, or to present the most unusual gift to a friend or relative that they will ever receive. All Cast Iron, Measures 9" x 7 1'4" x 7" tall. Not a child's toy by today's standards. For collectors and admirers of the past only.
