About Me

I have been interested in coachbuilt prams for many years, having bought one from a hospital for my first daughter in 1997, for just 10 pounds. I loved that pram, a silvercross parkward in blue and silver. I took it with us when we moved to Madrid and used it for my second and third daughters. When we moved back to the Uk I had no space for it and sold it for 50 pounds. Of course, I immediately regretted selling it and bought an identical one from ebay once I had the space. I still have this pram, it was used briefly for my last child, in fact, until she was nearly three! It's now in storage, as we are currently living in Gibraltar (husband in forces). I am moving back to Cricklade in Wiltshire in a couple of weeks, and cannot wait to see my pram again. My eldest daughter, Freya, has the dolls version of the parkward, in the same colours, and it was lovely to take both prams out together. My second daughter, Madeline, wants one of the red Oberons that are new out, so I feel another purchase coming on!

About Me

I living in Sweden and just love these wonderful coach built prams. I just want to learn more about them, about history and model name.

I just bought a wonderful pram that needs to be restore. It is a Silver Cross and the one who sold it thought it was bought 1967. But i am not sure about the model name and year, so I hope perhaps you can help me with that.

About Me

I am recently retired and am a mum to four girls and one boy. We have seven grand-children. Six grand-daughters (the youngest being 16mths and 9mths) and one grandson. My first pram was a green Churchill. Unfortunately I stored it at my granny's house and she let my brother have it to make a cart. He's seven years younger than me. I only found out when my third daughter was born 13yrs later and I went to get my pram. Oh dear!! We bought a Navy Blue Corniche which has now done my three younger children and all of my seven grand-children. I have bought a 40" Navy pram to restore. Don't know what it is yet (may be a Burley)??

About Me

I am newly retired with 9 stepgrandchildren and one of my own on the way very soon. I always said I would obtain an old Silver Cross pram to walk up and down the seafront where I live. I had a Carlton in the early 70s but always wished I had not gone for the "take apart" option ( only went in car twice!)  I really wanted the big wheel variety in navy blue with the rose motif !

Now, I have just been given 2 beautiful prams...a dark maroon Burley appx 35 yrs old and a navy/lighter blue "take apart"one. I am so enjoying the restoration ! My son in law has 3 more in his garage...which are v old and perhaps too hard for me to restore. A great challenge for someone tho !..one is London Carriage Co. and another is an old  deep bodied one in grey with cream lining. Could be stunning ! He also gave me 3 dolls prams ...the neighbours think I have gone crazy !!

About Me

Retired former NHS Manager(and RGN).

Owned a Wilson Silverdawne coachbuilt pram in the 1960's. It was magnificent! It was 'home' to my two children in their baby days. I sold it in 1969 - it was immaculate. Have bitterly regretted parting with it. I am constantly drawn to exhibitions of vintage prams with the coachbuilt models always drawing my attention. Recently became aware that I am not alone in my interest long beyond the 'baby years'. I now want to buy a restored coachbuilt pram - preferably one like I once owned in jade green with camelia upholstery - 24inch/18inch wheels. Is there one out there waiting for an admiring home?

i am 38 years old, mother of five and grandma to one beautiful little two year old granddauther. I have alway loved babie's, doll's and pram's and after having five beautiful children (three boy's and two girl's aged between 21 and 7) And after collecting pot dolls from a young age i started collecting reborn's. The more i looked into the reborn world the more i wanted to give it a try myself so after several month's reserch and buying all the equipment needed i gave it a go this was around eighteen month's ago and now i sell one or two a month on ebay. I also love pram's i have five doll pram's silvercross, royale and triang and two full size silvercross and royale i have also just been GIVEN a silvercross regency that need's some work doing but i am really looking forward to the end result.
