Carpenter Fire Engine #33 with 3 horses
This rare Carpenter engine was patented in the early 1880’s. The number 33 is cast into the side of the boiler.
Condition: As found, no damage evident. The original horses have been replaced with late 19th century ones manufactured by Dent. The Carpenter driver has been replaced with a period driver. The rear driver is missing.
This is still a very attractive historical 19th century cast iron toy.
