Footnotes

  • Waggonettes were used to transport parties on large estates. This example is believed to have been built in Sweden and is typically European in design being slightly heavier and less refined in construction.

    The waggonette has a yellow under carriage that has a contrasting black triple line. The upper body panels and driver's seat riser are painted black. The black painted panels are framed with a fine yellow line. The carriage is fitted with patent collinge oil axles and has unusual double row spoked wheels that are rubber shod, these would have been able to cope with the additional weight of passengers over rough ground.

    The waggonette passenger and coachman's seat cushions are upholstered with a Brewster check uncut moquette. Timber passenger lazy backs are fitted and a stick back rail runs along the length of the panel to frame the cushion. The rear passenger area is accessed by a centrally mounted body step and small door. The spring arrangement is also unusual, normal elliptic springs are fitted but these are supplemented with large leather bound coil springs that again would have helped the carriage when travelling along uneven roads.

    A pair of swingle trees are fitted to the front turntable in the European style. The waggonette is very original and remains unrestored. It is a very good example of its type.
