In 1890, F.M. Perkins founded Kenton Toys in Kenton, Ohio. Officially named Kenton Lock Manufacturing Company, the firm started manufacturing toys in 1894. Its line of toys included horse-drawn fire equipment, banks, and toy stoves made of cast iron. Kenton persisted through a series of takeovers, mergers, and the Great Depression after ceasing operations in 1952. Rare Kenton toys are featured in the upcoming sale of Trains, Toys, Collectibles, and Designer Scarves, presented by SJ Auctioneers. Available in the auction is an overland circus band wagon by Kenton.
The catalog offers toys, trains, and dolls by brands like Lionel, American Flyer, Marvel, Hubley, Tootsie Toy, Tonka, American Girl, Matchbox, and Herend. One particularly notable lot is a 1959 American Flyer Pony Express train set. The set includes powered and non-powered diesel and passenger cars.
