Bachman's is a well-known floral, home & garden gift shop in Minneapolis. "Loading the Squash Cart" was produced exclusively to commemorate the company's 110th anniversary (see photo of bottom-stamp). This highly collectible piece is a replica of an original Bachman's horse-drawn harvest cart from the early 1900's when they were still a vegetable farm. "Squash Cart" was only in production for one year. The design shows a wagon pulled by two horses. The driver holds the cord reins while another man rides in back atop the load of green squash. This piece is primarily porcelain. The wheels, undercarriage and shafts are metal. The wheels do not turn. Note the real chain attached to the hitch. This is a hand-painted, hand-assembled item thus there may be normal imperfections and variations in coloring. It comes in the original box and sleeve and has been carefully stored indoors in a smoke-free home.
Please look at all the photos to appreciate the character and quality of this piece. I provide lots of pictures, including close-ups, and am up front about any damage or flaws I find, so you will know exactly what you are getting. Please contact me if you have any questions.
