This is late 1800’s Concord Parasol Carriage. This restore took striping over 100 years of paint, replacing several wheel spokes, recreating several moldings, alot of sanding painting and finally re-upolstering seat and parasol

I know very little about restoring carriages. Nonetheless, I can tell good workmanship when I see it. Great job!!
