Lavish Personal State Chariot

1857 , Manufacturer: Cesare Sala



Lavish Personal State Chariot

This extraordinarily elegant carriage was used on state occasions by Empress Elisabeth and after her death by other members of the imperial family. The lavishly sculptured undercarriage with perch and double springs emphasises the especially high ceremonial rank of the vehicle, as do the sumptuous fittings with five windows, four magnificently decorated lanterns, the roof gallery and gold-plated ornamental strips on the upper coach body and the floor thresholds.
