A Nice Antique
Painted Sled

Antique Paint Decorated Doll Sled in Original Surface

Circa 1890-1910: Measuring a petite 14 1/2"  (367 mm)long , 5"(117 mm) wide, and 3 1/4" (83 mm) tall, this five color polychromatic painted doll sled boasts floral decoration surrounded by a double border of gold stenciling inside a blue pinstripe. Its cast iron runners in original green have red striping, and the sled even includes its original rope so that a little girl of the day could pull her favorite doll through the snow on a bright winter day. This gorgeous doll sled was gently used and exhibits the good honest wear that advanced collectors desire in their antiques.

I didn't realize that there were even doll sleds, so this 
was a wonderful surprise to me.

Thanks for dropping by,
and have a great part of the day or night.
