    Antique? Carved Wood Sleigh

    Hey everyone. I know this type of thing is not usually the topic of discussion around here, but this is pretty much the only active collecting forum I could find.

    My parents have had this laying around for about 15 years now. They purchased if from someone who had acquired it from an estate.

    Anyway, here are some pictures.

    It appears to be hand carved and hand painted, as there are brush and tool marks throughout. The skis are made of wood, and wrapped in steel, so I doubt this was ever meant to be used as an actual sleigh. I included the gallon jug in the first picture as a size reference. There are absolutely no dates, signatures or other identifying marks than I can find.

    I have no idea if it is valuable or even old, but it sure is cool.

    If anyone knows anything about this, or has seen something similar it would be awesome. Thanks.

    That is beautiful and I imagine at the right auction would sell for a good price.

    You need an expert appraiser on that, the following links have some children's sleigh's
