c1880 Reading Gypsy Vardo. This Vardo is fitted with patent Collinge axles the same as fitted to the Royal State Coach. It was owned by Charlotte Smith and painted for her by the renowned Yorkie Greenwood.
We have spent 3 years and over 4,000 hours lovingly restoring her, since then she has been barn stored for 6 years. Complete with stove and 24 carat gold leaf decoration.
Please ask for more pictures. We think the pictures speak for themselves but please feel free to ask any questions. A rare opportunity to own a wagon of such heritage. Viewing available by appointment.

This is an exceptional single horse four wheel wagon in original condition. It's exceptional condition confirms the fact it has been dry stored for many years.
Comes complete with shafts, hay ladders and slod. I am not an expert but I can't list one fault or bad point about it.
Unfortunately due to change in our circumstances we no longer have use for it and it is wasted sitting in the back of our barn collecting dust! Viewing welcomed, please call me to arrange a time.

Here we have a navy blue with detail pin stripes on a vintage driving cart, just pulled out of storage to take some better pictures. Was restored to a good standard before storage but struggling to find paper work of who did it.
Has been in storage for 10 years or more since owner passing away. Has gained some storage marks and bumps but nothing major. Still requires period wicker basket to go on back and some brake pads for brake lever.
No rot any where and is 100% usable condition. Open to offers. I'm unsure of what size horse this will fit as it's not my thing but happy to measure anything required to know. I've also loads more pictures if required.
