condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Heywood-Wakefield
size / dimensions: 49" x 22" x 39"
This lovely antique baby buggy has had some refinishing done, including the wood handle and the wheels. The inside has been lined in white vinyl that makes it easy to clean. There are 2 fitted sheets to go over the cushion that was made for it. There is a little storage area under the cushion. It's hard to take baby for a walk in it since it's large, but my babies took a lot of naps in it and I could wheel it around the house to be close to me. The back reclines somewhat. Overall dimensions are 49" long (including the handle) x 22" wide (at the widest part of the canopy) x 39" tall (ground to top of canopy).

I also think this would potentially make a fun prop for a professional photographer.

There are no manufacturer marks on it, but two "experts" from a site called Just Answer, as well as extensive internet searches confirm that it's a Heywood-Wakefield product, circa 1920. One expert valued it at about $950, and the other at between $1400 & $1600. I have no expectation of getting that kind of money but I am asking $300 OR best reasonable offer.

This would be expensive to ship, but if someone is willing to pay for it I will arrange to have it shipped, otherwise pick up will be in West Des Moines, IA.

CASH ONLY
