My Grandmother used to sit on the left of the back bench and look around or between the persons sitting on the front bench. I was asking information on a german horse forum as well and someone there thinks that maybe there was a seat on the front (the empty space you see, which my grandmother used for a big picknick basket) where someone would sit higher up to drive the people around. But I don;t think my grandmother ever had that seat with it. Nor do I know if it came with it or if it was build for a picknick basket like she used it for.
Anyone have any ideas where I can possibly find the name of the builder or building year on it?
I have put the carriage back in the garage for now, I have repainted the metal work but since we will have rain the next few days, I wanted to keep it dry to protect it. Thank you all so much for your help so far
