Governess Cart or Tub Cart c1901 - 1905

Horses & Ponies Chester, Cheshire, GB 5 months ago

Description

Antique, full size Governess Cart.
Complete, (except door is missing),
Comes with original wood spoke wheels with contemporary rubber tyres fitted, for the Edwardian cobbled streets. Largely in untouched original condition.

These carts were the chosen form of transport for the Edwardian private Teacher / Tutor or Governess, to collect their clients children in. They sold well to Governesses, because of there low centre of gravity made them very stable, meaning they were hard to tip over on bends. Also, the light construction selling point of the cart meant, ".. even a lady could harness it to a horse.."

A wonderful equine period item!!

Collection from Chester or can deliver locally for free.
Can deliver to the UK mainland for £1.65 per mile.
