Description

Plate showing two carriages and the line drawing of an alternative body for the second one. The Victoria was a light, one-horse carriage of French origin with a folding top, renowned for its elegance. In this model, the coachman’s seat appears to have been removed, while the back seat may have been intended for a footman. The Sovereign is shown as a four wheel enclosed carriage.
