The model for this two-seater child's carriage was the child's carriage built in Paris in 1811/12 for the later Duke of Reichstadt . The gilt crane-neck undercarriage with C-springs, the basketwork pattern painted on the body and the screw-on sunroof ornamented with crowns are especially exquisite. It is thought to be a gift from the Italian king Vittorio Emmanuele II, who in 1863 also honoured the Portuguese Crown Prince Carlos with an almost identical carriage built by Sala. (MKR)
