I posted this wagon model four years ago. At the time I had no idea as to its origins. The previous owner in Dayton, Ohio had it displayed in his office for many years but had no idea where it came from. Recently I ran across information on the internet. Now I believe that this wagon is a model of a Brown Manufacturing Co. wagon. What it was used for is anyone's guess. W.P. Brown founded the company in 1879. The company manufactured plows and other agricultural implements in addition to wagons. The front of their wagons was labeled Zanesville after the location where produced, and the side was labeled Brown. The company often painted their wagons dark green with golden yellow lettering and striping.
