Antique Carriage information wanted

Hello Everybody,

I am trying to sell my grandmother's antique carriage that she used back in the day. I am trying to find information on the model and to see if I can find from what year it is and any other information on it. SO far I have had no luck finding anything on it.
I will attach a photo so you can look at it and maybe someone recognizes it?
Also I would like to know the best way to restore it.
It has the authentic ligts with it, the ones that hold candles with the actual candles still inside.
I hope you can help me on this journey.
Thank you all in advance

Are you in the USA? That carrige is interesting...I have a carriage that seems to be in the same style that is Eastern European. Does the carriage have shafts or a pole?

You might try contacting one of the carriage museums. There are a couple that I know of. There is this one:
Carriage Museum of America
Then there is this one, which is actually near me.
Granger Homestead and Carriage Museum

I never knew anything about driving, but my best friend used to drive a lot, so I have learned. She has several antique carriages. Anyway, one of the largest competitions is in our area, and many of the carriages are antique. Here is the website of the competition. Perhaps one of the driving societies could help also.

I actually am from Europe. The Netherlands to be exact. What do you mean with "Shaft or pole"?

Sorry, I see the shaft tip ( for a single horse) in the bottom of the picture. A pole goes in between a pair of horses.

The CAA is a good source of information on carriages.

Thank you all so much for you help so far. I have contacted the CMA, sent them an email plus photo's and will hopefully hear something soon.
Any other information is more than welcome off course

Your carriage is in excellent condition. IDK as much about driving as the others who have posted here, put it's possible that this carriage could have still been in use even into the 1930's.
You should hold out for a good price for it.

I am currently restoring it, re-painting where needed but keeping it as much as the original as possible.
I haven't heard back from professionals yet on what price to expect for it. Anyone in here have any ideas?
