This cast iron set was manufactured by Kenton in 1939 and includes a bandwagon, a steam calliope, a bear cage and a lion cage which are drawn by white horses. The set is a variation from the 1920's Overland Circus Set which included motorized vehicles rather than horses. The horse variation was intended to more accurately depict a circus.
