Re: Identity of brass steps

Could they be lost wax copies of injection molded plastic ? Many people are able to do that.
I have some bracket grabs and gondola drop doors made by people on stmfc. :-) In plastic
there are several versions.

Do you know how old they are ? That might help to narrow the search.

Quite some time ago, I got a set of parts for some resin cars, miscellaneous plastic and metal detail parts for resin castings. One of them is the two-rung sill steps that PFE placed under reefer doors after about 1947. I show them below. Can anyone identify the maker? I have looked in the Precision Scale material and not found them, nor are they in old Cal-Scale catalogs. Any help appreciated.
