SEO500: Victorian Buggy
This is a beautiful Victorian doll carriage or buggy. These have become difficult to find and especially in this lovely condition. It has been tucked away for 20 years, not displayed or played with during that time. (No exposure to sunlight). So there is very little fading of the original caramel colored natural wicker and the cloth and embroidered tulle parasol shows no sun rot. The lace on the parasol is fragile, as was it's original condition, since the lace is a very fine tulle. There are a few places where the metal foundation or spokes of the parasol have pierces the tips of the lace parasol and some minor tears to lace, but they are not obvious. The wicker retains its original color and finish. The parasol is on a metal rod, which can be raised, lowered or removed entirely by twisting the attached key. See my photos. Some wear to the rubber on the tire rims. Wooden handle has original finish. Metal foundation is in good order, color is black. Some minor loss to some of the wicker, mainly where the foot well curls up and is accented with knobs. Some possible very old repairs , like a screw in the wicker seat, for example. The antique quilted pink heart pillow is included. We have also shown the buggy with an old bear. Please note the bear is for display purposes and not included in the sale. From floor to handle, the buggy measures approximately 26" high. From the handle across the buggy to the tip of the foot well measures approximately 33". Across the entire back is 13~1/2" and just the back portion, where dolly's back would be situated is 8". Seat has a crack across the wood panel. Unpacked the carriage weighs 10 pounds. I have additional photos, if needed. If you would like additional photos of a certain area, please message me. If have tried to be as accurate as possible in my description. My photos should also add clarity. Some minor assembly required as the wheels will be removed as well as the parasol to keep the box size to a minimum. They will be included in the parasol, as well. When shipped, UPS will take in consideration the size of the package (volume) over the weight of the package. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. Photos are considered part of the description. Fixed shipping of 180 dollars reflects UPS ground shipping in a box which includes delivery confirmation and insurance.
