Rare Cast Iron Kenton Sight-Seeing Auto

Circa 1905: What a pleasure it is to offer this extremely scarce Kenton Sight-Seeing Auto to the antique toy collecting community! Comic character automotive toys are far and few between, but the hefty 10" Sight-Seeing Auto is in a class of its own. This spectacular example is completely original, including its paint, steering wheel, and its five characters, which include Gloomy Gus, The Sailor, Mama Katzenjammer, Papa Katzenjammer and Happy Hooligan, and has no chips, cracks, or repairs. One of the great antique American cast iron toys, the Kenton Sight-Seeing Auto was modeled after the early 20th century tour bus and features its five comic cohorts ready to take in all of the stops contained in the owner's imagination.
