Description

Plate showing an “American” carriage with a folding top, looking somewhat like a Victoria, and a Wourch, or Wourst barouche. American carriages were often light vehicles of the likes of buggies or small phaetons imported from the US to Europe, or assembled in Europe from imported parts. Made from harder wood—such as hickory—than the local production, they tended to be lighter and faster.

The captions read in the original: Américaine à caisses mobiles—Calèche Wourst.
