I have been very lucky and fortunate to represent and sell some wonderful vehicles and appointments.  Below you will find pictures of just a few of these pieces.  

Please let me know if you are looking for something similar to a piece shown on this page. I am continually buying vehicles and appointments, and never know “what is around the corner” 

As we all know, there any many options to choose from when purchasing an antique.  I would like to thank everyone who chose to buy their carriage, wagon or appointment from me.  I hope the piece exceeded any expectations that you had.

An antique delivery wagon with classic lines in solid condition. The piece has traditional wood block brakes, a toeboard, and a tailgate on the back. You won't be disappointed. Pictures and details to come shortly.  Priced to sell.

Demensions: 29 inches tall, 11 inch flat side, and 12 inch depth

It is indispensable to have a basket to put sticks, umbrellas, parasols, and the guard’s horn in.

A sleigh that is a combination of affordability and practicality is a formula that rarely misses.

Elegance through simplicity is the easiest way to describe this American sleigh.


fiske_01Appointment: Matching pair of wall mount harness racks.
Condition: Factory original. Perfect
Material: Cast iron
Maker: J.W. Fiske. New York

I love antiques that are in factory original condition. We can have the piece restored, but we can never replace the craftsmanship and finish that was applied to the piece when it was built approximately 100 years ago.


nuss_horn_1Appointment: Antique coach horn with brass strengthening ribs
Maker: Nuss Mfg. Co. Harrisburg, PA
Length: 52.5 inches without mouthpiece

Horns over fifty inches long, easily give five notes and sound mellower than shorter horns.


Appointment: Antique harness racks. Wall mount.
Condition: Excellent
Material: Cast iron capped with wood
Maker: J.L. Mott Iron Works. NY

Few antiques combine form and function as well as antique stable hardware. Their combination of cast iron and wood, and a well designed style, will add historic charm to any tack room, home, or stable.


wicker_phaeton_1Vehicle: Wicker Phaeton
Condition: Excellent. Older restoration

When people talk about restoring a carriage, it is important that time, effort, and resources are spent on the right piece. This carriage is the “right piece”


Appointment: Big City Water Trough

This is a big-city cast iron watering trough.  These troughs were strategically placed throughout cities and provided water to the horses and other animals that were used to conduct daily business.

Condition: Very good
Material: Hardened steel

According to Manual of Coaching by Fairman Rogers, pole chains should have straight open links, and not links like a curb-chain.
