This piece is an extremely rare antique silver filigree miniature carriage with revolving wheels and a rock crystal rear window. I've sold a lot of miniatures including really early Dutch ones but have never seen such an item as this. This is all hand made and soldered together as you can see, the wheels are especially good. Later filigree models are castings and look mass produced. I would certainly date this to late 18th c. Where it was made is a mystery to me - it could be Dutch or perhaps Chinese? Please let me know.

There are no markings at all but has been tested as solid high grade silver.

It's in good complete condition with a chip in the rock crystal as shown.

It was absolutely encrusted with dirt and completely black when I got it so my silversmith has cleaned it up.

A must have if you're an early silver toy collector.

SIZE (approx)

(25.4mm to the inch)

The size is 81mm long x 37mm wide.

WEIGHT (approx)

(31.1g to the troy ounce)

The weight is 66g. Gross.

*CONDITION *

Please look carefully at all of the photos below, we normally add between 5 and 12 shots at high magnification in studio conditions insuring perfect focus and high clarity. From these you will get a very good idea of the general condition, more so than I can describe concisely in words. If you are unsure of any aspect of the condition, please e-mail me before offerding. Please do not buy as a result of viewing the gallery photo only.
