Fred and his mate

Found this online while looking for something else and thought it rather nice. I've not seen it before, great name, "Fred and his Mate".

Steeple Jacks was Lot 205 in the Arne Toy Museum sale in Dudley, November 2013 (see Arena). Seems to have been available on ebay ever since.

The Steeplejacks, another of my ex-machines, was totally original when I owned it; now repainted, coin changed, new background.
No doubt renamed "Fred and his Mate" after the late Fred Dibnah.


According to Carter's book, "perhaps by Essex, or even Wrights of Bridlington".
