- 18186 Very Rare Victorian Oak Wheel Chair Wheelchair - Made by Sargent Company of New York
Wow! When you think you have seen it all in the antique world after 45 years, every once in a while something pops up that is so unique and it gets your juices flowing. Believe it or not it is on this turn of the century wheelchair as I have never seen one like it in my life and I can't believe the outstanding original condition. It must not have ever been used. It has a label on the back that says it was made by the George F. Sargent Company Makers out of New York. It dates from the turn of the century. It has a cane seat, back and leg rests that are all in nice condition. It has the old wire wheels, just like the old bicycles from the turn of the century. It has a baby carriage handle on the back, which even has paint in nice condition. If you look where the chair sits on top of the frame, it was a wagon spring suspension to provide a comfortable ride. It is all solid oak and even the front little wheels are oak and oak slatted spokes. All the original cane is there and it is in the original finish. If you have a drug store and you want something to display in your window, than this is definitely something any big pharmacy should have. The condition is stunning and it hasn't even been touched with a rag for a polish. The back is adjustable for added. This could replace a recliner in your home or office if you are looking for a conversation piece. It is solid oak construction, original spindles, original cane, original wire spokes and even the paint is original. The overall size, which is hard to measure, is approximately 39 inches from the handle to the front of the foot rests, 29 inches wide, 26 inches high to the arm in the upright position and the legs and back are adjustable. This is a stunning conversation piece. What a beautiful original unbelievable condition turn of the century wheelchair. Shipping starts at $345 for a driveway delivery in our normal area.
