ANTIQUE Cast Iron HOOVER & CO MIAMISBURG OHIO "EXCELSIOR" Tractor Implement Seat:
$200

Antique "Excelsior" Tractor Implement SeatHoover & Co. Miamisburg, OHCirca 1866-1890Approx: 18" W x 17" H x 4" DApprox" 16.35 lbsReduced!
Fantastic & fairly rare tractor or implement seat. Not impossible to find, but very rare in this condition. The "Excelsior" seat, Made by Hoover & Co, Miamisburg, Ohio.
This is a very old seat. The Hoover & Co. Company was established in 1866 and was renamed Hoover & Gamble Company by 1892. This seat is most likely pre 1890, as the company was already transitioning in name prior to formally making the change.
The company apparently specialized in farm accessories & implements such as threshers, binders, mowers, etc. I found some old advertising indicating such. I have pasted some material I found on the Hoover & Co History below from the Brookville Historical Society.
The History of Montgomery County, Ohio by W. H. Beers & Company 1882
By Jacob Zimmer........In 1835, Allen, Watson & Allen commenced the manufacture of grain separators on the northwest corner of Bridge and Canal streets. The power employed was a one-horse tread wheel. This firm was changed in 1841, when D. H. Hoover took the place of the Messrs. Allen, the firm being thereupon, Watson & Hoover. This continued until 1855, when Mr. Watson retired, Hoover continuing alone until 1859, when the firm was changed to D. H. Hoover Son. In 1848, the establishment was removed to the east side of the canal, having purchased the shop of N. T. Beals. In 1866, the firm was again changed to Hoover & Co., C. R. Allen assuming an interest. In 1870, the senior partner, David H. Hoover, died, and thereupon William Gamble be came a partner. In 1878, C. R. Allen died, his interest, however, remaining in the firm. This establishment has grown to large proportions, from one to two thousand mowers and reapers being turned out annually, giving employment to 125 men. Within a year or two, the manufacture of a patent twine binding reaper has been added, of which many hundreds will no doubt be built annually, the demand at this time being greater than the supply. In 1880, a large three-story brick building, besides many smaller additions in buildings, were added and supplied with the most improved modern machinery, to facilitate the demand of this thriving business. .....A similar, but inferior "Excelsior" seat sold for $225 recently on . This one is far better, so I am pricing a little above that. See item #331994974142 for reference. Another "Excelsior" sold for $589, but was a different style and in worse shape (#351890051345).
