Footnotes

  • This Clarence was built by the coach builder Hans Rosengren & Co of Sweden. Subject to an older restoration it is a particularly elegant example and was built to seat four people inside.

    Finished with lower green panels and undercarriage with a single black line and upper black body panels. The Clarence is fitted with patent collinge oil axles and
    iron shod warner band wheels.

    The passenger compartment is accessed from either side via the doors. The doors are fitted with step covers to provide a clean step upon entering the carriage. Windows are fitted to both doors and can be lowered, with window pulls, into the door recess. The internal upholstery has been conserved and is finished in deep buttoned drab wool cloth with contrasting gold coloured piping, broad lace, and gold covered silk buttons. The floor has a new drab coloured carpet fitted over the original lino. To the front of the passenger compartment there is a curved glass window edged in blue wool cloth. A small window is fitted to the rear panel and this is covered by a hinged privacy flap.

    Externally the Coachman's seat is upholstered in a dark green wool cloth with a patent leather seat surround secured with brass pin bead. The mudguards and dashboard are finished in the correct type of patent leather. Unusually the upper body panels are tin and the roof is finished with a painted oil cloth. The body fittings are a mixture of brass, chrome and silver plate. Correct style original lamps are fitted to the Clarence but the silver plating has worn through in many places. An English type hand brake is operated from the coachman's seat.

    The Clarence is complete with a pair pole.
