Personal Driving Phaeton with Rubber Wheels

Phaeton is the name given to a sporty, open carriage which could be driven by the gentleman himself. Coachman and footman could be accommodated on the rear bench. The green paint with delicate gilt edging and the crowns on the lanterns indicate that this phaeton was a court vehicle. According to tradition, this carriage was last used by Emperor Karl I. (MKR)
