13 inch long 33 cm Very Rare 19Th Century Knife Grinders Salesmen Sample Cart with Label. Made of fine cherry wood and ebony with tinplate details. The elegantly shaped knife sharpening model may have originally purposed as a salesman sample or patent model. With paddles designed to work the wheel and grinding rod with wooden storage boxes at the sides and with raised beaded lettering at the back sign plate V.R. Broomfeild Sic. Excellent condition from the mid 1800s.
I believe this piece to be English because there is a crown in between the V CROWN R and there is a tiny cross inside the crown.
Outstanding sculpting of this model with fine detail of construction.
