Antique children's bentwood rams horn snow sled

Up for auction is a very well constructed antique bentwood child's snow sled. It has the rare rams horn configuration on the front of the sled. T is vintage iron strapping on the bottom of the rails; it is in perfect condition with no pitting. All nails and screws are in place to hold it together. T are also bentwood support pieces between the bottom rails and the webbed seating. The vintage woven wool seat is in very good condition. It has some repairs, but the repairs are hidden, except from the bottom, as seen in photo. The only other repair that has been made was w one of the seat rails had cracked, was glued, and a support block was inserted as seen in photo. This is hard to detect as seat webbing covers the top of this repair. T is a partial manufacturer's stencil on the top of both seat rails that cannot be discerned. These sleds have many desireable uses as interior design, vintage wall hangings, accents for Christmas decorations, etc This vintage sled has the original patina finish. The piece measures 39 1/2" long by 14 3/4" wide.

A VERY UNIQUE PIECE for decorating the entrance foyer, by the fire place, next to Christmas tree! A REAL FIND!
