Z-2389 - 1890s Wilkins PURITAN Paddlewheeler Cast Iron Toy Boat


This extremely rare toy is completely original and is in the best condition for one of these toys that I have ever owned.

This toy is approx 10 1/2 inches long and is lettered on the paddlewheels "Puritan" It is made of cast iron with three wheels and was made for the child to attach a string and pull.

I have seen similar toys with no paint and broken or missing parts. This particular toy shows much of its original paint and is not cracked or broken. It is in amazing condition considering it was played with hard and its age of approximately 128 years. It is cast iron and works as it did 128 years ago. Simply a fantastic and rare victorian era toy.
