An early 20th. century o gauge tin Ives Pullman Parlor car #141. The train car is lithographed in gray with brass plaques and trim around the windows. One of the celluloid windows has a hole and there are some minor dents and minor surface rust but overall pretty good condition. The car measures 12" long, 4" high, and 2 1/2" wide. Plaques on the sides say "PULLMAN", PARLOR CAR, 141, and "MADE IN THE IVES SHOPS". I believe this car dates to around the 1920's - which makes it close to 100 years old.

The Ives Manufacturing Company was an American toy manufacturer from 1868 to 1932. It was founded by Edward Ives, a descendant of Plymouth colony governor William Bradford, in Plymouth, Connecticut. The company initially produced paper dolls whose limbs moved in response to hot air. Ives began producing a wide range of toys, including a toy cannon that shot using real gunpowder and clockwork powered dolls and animals that could move. The clockwork toys were designed by Jerome Secor, Nathan Warner, and Arthur Hotchkiss and by the 1880s, Ives was a leading producer of these toys.
