About 1890 -1900,  so sayeth Denis Harvey
the author of ' The Gypsies' and 'The English
Gypsy Caravan'.

Recently restored, with working original
Queenie stove. Very unusual back door.
 Three window mollicroft and there is a very beautiful oak ladder that goes with it too.

Back wheels 3'6" and front wheels 3'.
Maker on wheels is H. Cockwill Builder Meeth written on brass hub. The axle maker is
Richard and Sons, Wednesbury.

Delightfully simple carvings of leaves on
porch brackets and inside. Rather enchanting examples of naive art.

It spent a number of years in the Tilford folk museum.

It has been in the same family for the last 35 years so this is a very sad sale, due to moving.
