This charming antique wooden children’s carriage was made in the last half of the 1800s. It is a completely unique decorative piece and has been carved from walnut wood. It has tufted upholstery held in by brass nailheads, and the wooden rims, spokes, and axles are all hand carved. The entire carriage has carved decorations of grape leaves, acanthus leaves, and grapes. Antique children's snow sleds are sometimes found on the market from time to time, but this is the first carriage or cart like this that we have seen. It might have been commissioned as a gift or a decorative object for a children's room.
CONDITION: Good condition with minor scratches and losses. Small stain on fabric.
