#739 This Albany sleigh is over 100 years old.  It was stored in the loft of a barn for a good number of years.  I could tell it had been well taken care of because I found no dry rot.  The family member that contacted me stated he trusted Kringle Sleigh Company to perform a quality restoration.  Being over 100 years old, it needed a tune up.

I started with the removal of the body from the running gear.  I found numerous dings and bangs.  It was very much in need of some minor repair.  I found no major problems.  If I found a part needing replacement, that happened.  A lot of tender love and care was performed.  By this time, the sleigh and I were on first name basis.  I wanted this sleigh to become better than new.

The color, upholstery and pin striping were requested by the owner.  Fine choices for a loved sleigh.

Prices for all carriages have regressed in the past years.  The owner is pricing this vehicle less than his investment.

If you have a large room that would accommodate this vehicle, it is a must have.  The widest point of this sleigh is 42" and 53" high and overall length is 75".  Storage of the shafts will do just fine hanging from the ceiling of a garage.

#809 This sleigh is a diamond in the rough.  To start with, the upholstery is sun bleached.  It needs a new paint job - removal of all paint and primer to bare wood.  This will ensure there is no chemical problem with a paint from any of the auto paint companies.  Attention to detail of rust pits in the iron so that the new paint looks and acts like a new piece of iron.

Now what makes this sleigh really unique -- it has a name tag "Waterloo Wagon Co., Ltd., Waterloo, N.Y., Leonard Story - Paul G. Walsh" and steps with a large "W" molded into the steps.  It is also apparent that it was kept out of the rain!  It is well over 100 years old and still very solid.  The shafts are included with this sleigh.

(69.5" runner length, 56.5" L from top of back to eagle heads, 39.5" runner width, 42" W from arm rest to arm rest, 33.5" inside seat width, 48" H)

SOLD

#810 This is a good solid sleigh.  It needs a new dash and back panel; however, it is usable.  It's a great decorator sleigh if it's kept in a dry location.  The sleigh is a design of the pre-Albany style.  This ages the vehicle to be approximately 135-145 years old.  The wood has survived this long because it was kept out of the rain.

#813 This sleigh was manufactured by Janesville Carriage in Janesville, Wisconsin.  It has the original brass tag and the foot steps. The doors have all the hardware.  The body is mounted on springs for a comfortable ride.  It has older paint.  The upholstery is in excellent condition.  The sleigh is in strong working condition.  New paint and the placing of pin striping would much improve the looks.  The inside door panels have leather pockets but the leather needs to be replaced because of age.  The sleigh is over 100 years old.  With the springs and doors, it makes it a collectible vehicle.  It does not have shafts.  It has both arm rails and rein rail with eagle head mounting (see last photo).  The measurements are as such:  39" wide, 54" high and 75" long. SOLD

#803 Decorator Sleigh - this sleigh is smaller than average (see dimensions below).  It was built somewhere around 1850-1870.  It presents itself very nicely as an example of early sleighs.  Because this sleigh is still around after all of these years, it was kept out of the rain.  Water will cause the old wood to deteriorate very rapidly.  Frozen snow does not penetrate the wood.

The following measurements are the total measurements of the highest point, the widest part of the sleigh and the longest part of the sleigh.
