Wonder if the Morton Toy Company could be a successor entity to the Morton E. Converse Toy Company...

Keep in mind that "Morton Toy Company" may signify a retail store rather than a manufacturer. There is a good possiblity that the item was produced by a wheelgoods manufacturer who did contract work. One of the several of these, for example, was Murray.

When you are able to erect some images of the item there may be details which will permit readers to identify the actual manufacturer...

"Morton Toy Comapny" may have been a single location retail business which closed decades ago. Could prove difficult to research unless you know a specific town for its location.
