Patent or Salesman’s Cased Model,
Sled with Brake & Documents
Date/Period: 1870s - SOLD


Patent or Salesman’s Cased Model, Sled with Brake & Documents, entire view

Measurement: Case: 17.75 x 7.5 x 9.5", sled: 17” x 7.75 x 6 3/8”

Material: Oak, walnut, steel, and small rubber drums, braking mechanism may not
be complete, please call David to discuss.

Condition: Very good

Additional Information: An expertly constructed snow sled of mortise and tenon
joinery. The sled is contained within a dovetail joined lidded box made of poplar.
Within the case are a letter written on Carr, Crawley & Devlin, a partnership formed in
1871 and directed by Thomas Devlin a manufacturer and, capitalist.
The company was in the hardware trade and other businesses. The brief document
speaks to castings, lead time and credit. Perhaps when the sled or braking system was
manufactured, if it went into production, the maker contracted with Carr, Crawley &
Devlin to cast parts for braking system.

A memorandum dated 1878 from Towner, Landstreet & Co. having a footer for
“Goodyear’s Rubber House” discusses an order…the sled brake system utilizes two
small rubber pieces. Of course, this is solely conjecture. Also included are a postcard
and envelope.
