Express Wagons are replicas of German design used in the 1800s-1900s. These wagons can be upgraded with wheel bushings and a metal gear brace to make them functioning working wagons just like they were used in the day.
The large express wagon box measures 48” long X 24-1/2” wide X 4-1/2” high. This wagon has 24" wheels on the rear and 19" wheels on the front.
A smaller version is also available the box measures 36” long X 18” wide X 4” high. This wagon utilizes 15" wheels on the back and 11-1/2" wheels on the front.
The old time wooden wheelbarrows are working replicas of the wheelbarrows used in the 1800s and early 1900s. Without many other options, these wheelbarrows were used across almost any setting from home, farm, business, and construction.
Old wooden antique wheelbarrows are hard to find for those who want to use them for décor and displays. These stunning reproductions of the classic will leave people wondering if it is old or new.
The buckboard wagon is another popular nostalgic display. Like the express wagons the medium and large sizes can be upgraded with wheel bushings and metal gear brace to be more than a decorating piece. They can be pulled by a small goat, pony, or garden tractor and have even been used in parades.
These same buckboard wagons also are available in a sleigh version which also can be used as décor or as a functioning sleigh pulled by small animals.
Another classic cart is the peddler cart, or as some may call it a vendor cart. These carts were again used during the 1800s-1900s as street vendor carts to sale everything from fresh flowers, newspapers, wares and produce. They are now popular décor and merchant display carts for fresh flowers, product displays, and even used in culinary arts as food display carts.
This cart is used in the background of a popular TV day time soap opera.
