1842 - 1930's
John and Elisa Stevens
Charles A. Bailey designed toys, and assigned some patents to J.E.
Stevens and some to Gong Bell, so he must have been an independent
inventor/designer. He designed the fish for Gong Bell, one of it's
earliest toys. His toy designs feature some of the finest castings.
Not all of the pull toys by J&E Stevens were bell toys.
