A charming hand painted wood cart on chassis and wheels, which originally would have been hitched to a toy animal. Likely estate made. The cart rests on the chassis, and all wood is solid. Painted throughout in a lovely shade of green with some decorative detailing. Lovely wear and patina throughout. Plenty of room in the cart area to display additional items, making this an ideal decorative piece with provenance.
