Traditional Two Wheel Carriages

The finest traditionally made carriages.

Extensive research is undertaken to produce technically and historically correct carriages.

The traditional wooden wheels can be supplied on conventional axles or with hubs incorporating taper roller bearings.

All bodywork, ironwork and forecarriages are superbly crafted.

All our springs are made in house. All the leaves are fully tapered, pipped and slotted to achieve a product of the highest traditional standard.

It takes as long to paint and finish a carriage as it does to build it as more than 18 coats of paint are applied!

All upholstery is English leather (or cloth, depending on your requirements) with leather seat valances fixed with traditional lead filled pin beading.

The rubber mats have a welted leather edge and are all removable for ease of cleaning.

The seat ironwork can be covered with leather, all hand-stitched if required.

Please contact us to discuss price as each carriage is hand built to individual specifications.
