Howdy. You're bidding on a charming little miniature ox cart. This was a part of my childhood, as I saw it every time that we went to visit my grandparents. My Grandfather was posted all over the world while he was in the army, and my grandparents brought this home from one of their postings. As you can see in the pictures, it appears that it was made in Costa Rica, and that's really all that I know about it. It's at least 40 years old, and probably much older than that (I'm 38).The cart is completely covered with hand painted decorations, and has a removable tray on top so that things can be stored in the interior. As you can also see in the pictures, it easily dis-assembles to ship or store. The cart needs a good cleaning, but to be honest, I haven't tried it because I don't know what that will do to the paint. Probably just a little work with a damp cloth would work wonders on it. I'm happy to answer any questions and will also be happy to provide more pictures on request. This is sold as-is, w-is. I need to hear from the winning bidder within seven days of the auction's close, otherwise the item will be relisted and negative feedback will be left. Thanks for your interest in this item, and Good Luck Bidding.
