We are offering for sale J&E Stevens bronze casting patterns for only 1/2 of one of the figures on the top of the Butting Match cap gun.  The three casting patterns are still attached to the casting tree which measures approximately 8 1/2" long.  Also included are 3 cast iron pieces that were cast from this broze mold or one like it.  There is a bit of tarnish on the casting pattern piece and a bit of scattered surface rust on the cast iron pieces so please veiw all photos.  See below for the origin of these parts. 

In 1959 the J&E Stevens foundry declared bankruptcy and ceased production in Cromwell Connecticut.  At that time three of the factory employees were enlisted to clean everything out of the foundry.  They divided the contents three ways amongst themselves and created a toy collectors treasure trove.  In recent years a few auction houses have been selling off some of the collections of those former employees.  The bronze casting molds as well as the cast iron pieces we are offering in this sale were originally sold from one such collection in 2009.

PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THESE EARLY AMERICAN J&E STEVENS BRONZE CASTING PATTERNS AND CAST IRON PIECES.
