We are offering for sale a J&E Stevens bronze casting pattern for wheels and two other wheels as well from the J&E Stevens factory.  The wheel in the center is the bronze casting pattern and it measures approximately 4" in diameter x 1/8" thick.  The other two wheels may also be casting patterns at a different stage, but we cannot be sure.  The wheel on the far left measures approximately 4 1/16" diameter x 1/8" thick and is not bronze (we're not sure if it's lead or another metal, don't think it is cast iron).  The wheel on the far right measures approximately 3 1/2" diameter x 1/8" thick.  This wheel is not bronze but we're not sure what kind of metal it is either.  Please be sure to 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 pattern as well as the other 2 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 THIS EARLY AMERICAN J&E STEVENS BRONZE CASTING PATTERN FOR WHEELS AND OTHER WHEELS.
