Authentic Deco IndustrialSKIPPY SNO-PLANE VINTAGE 3 RUNNER SNOW SLED MANUFACTURED IN OHIO BY THE AMERICAN NATIONAL COMPANY PATENTED IN 1934 MEASURES 42" IN LENGTH, IS 9" IN HEIGHT, AND 23" WIDE AT FRONT STEERING HANDLES MANUFACTURED FROM STEEL, CHROMED METAL, WOOD, RUBBER AND PAINT THIS SLED WAS SHOWN AT THE TOLEDO MUSEUM OFART AS PART OF THE THE ALLIANCE OF ART AND INDUSTRY IN 2002 AS AN EXAMPLE OF INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL DESIGNS THAT REFLECT WIDER COMMUNITY STYLES, SUCH AS ART DECO AND MID CENTURY INDUSTRIAL. This auction for one authentic Skippy Sno-Plane 3 Runner Sled manufactured by The American National Compant of Toledo Ohio. Patented in 1934, this sled combines Art Deco and Modern Industrial design features which produce a sophisticated and powerful look! I like this sled because in a world of box shaped and generic looking sleds, this one stands out and looks rocket like. It also has original technology like the 3 Runner Blades (rather than 2), the center blade steering, and the chrome covered spring return steering mechanism. I have lived in Houston since 1986, and we have had no snow during that time that would allow the use of this Sno-Plane sled. This item is in very good vintage condition. Normal wear and tear associated with a used sled. Runners are straight, all wood is accounted for, and it is fully operational (just wax the runners and you are as stylish a sledder as will be seen this winter!) 20.00 Parcel Post Shipping if delivery speed is not important. Thanks for Looking. Please ask any questions you might have by messaging me through E-Bay.
