Wooden sleigh with metal runners.
This item was at the bottom of a large box of old books and toys
The design of this carved wood and hand painted sleigh with metal sliders is based on 18th century Dutch children's sleds that were used like wheeled baby carriages on their terrain in the winter. This style is sometimes attributed to Russian sleds, however this is Dutch influenced. This particular scaled down size is used for displaying antique dolls. There are quite a number of these being offered on the market, and it indicates that these are newer 20th century made objects. The estimate is based on actual recent past auction sales of comparables.
