    Art Deco - or earlier - child's tricycle with solid wheels
    Art-Deco tricycle with solid wheels
    This is a super find, early 20th century child's tricycle in "as found" condition. There is rust, tarnish and the leather saddle has got lost on its journey, but what a journey it must have been. Solid wheels and a beautifully curved frame would make this an absolutely stunning addition to any interior project within a home, shop, restaurant or theatrical production. Clean it up to reveal its inner beauty or leave as it is to tell its story - this one's a keeper.
