*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #2099 - This is a 1915 Model T Circus wagon that has appeared in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus parade hosting the ringmaster. The eight scrolls were hand carved using original circus scrolls; the molds were located in Texas, taken and recarved out of white pine as they would have been originally. The scrolls then were sealed and 24-karat Italian gold leaf was applied. The finishing details are finger-swirled 24-karat gold leaf and professional pinstriping. The cage bars were made to size, originally of wrought iron, but changed to solid brass tubing for aesthetic purposes. The wooden spokes were handcrafted by the Amish in Pennsylvania and assembled to make the wheels. Each spoke is pinstriped and sealed. This Model T circus wagon has a Ruxtel high speed rear end, giving this vehicle four different speeds. This circus vehicle has been meticulously restored and is truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
