About Me

I am a retired art teacher who lives in Sussex and is passionate about painting, making patchwork quilts and buying vintage prams.I have one grandson and expecting another soon.I used to have many (4 children! ) large vintage prams and have been known to pile 3 kids and shopping in and around them and push them up Ditchling Road in Brighton to where I used to live! I was never particularly interested in the type of pram I had but they were always vintage and coachbuilt, usually Silver Cross.I wish I had them now!!!

I did buy a Silver Cross Durham Rose, lovely pram when my daughter was pregnant and then I caught the bug! I moved on to a Vintage black Marmet .So I sold the Durham Roseand now I'm looking to buy a Wilson Versaille.

When will it stop I ask myself!

About Me

I am 62 years old and have loved prams since I was a young child. The picture is of my daughter in the Lovers knot Silver Cross and my twin boys had the blue twin Silver Cross, not sure of the name of it.

I currently own a Silver Cross coach built dolls pram, in immaculate condition. The Oberon. I would be interested in selling as space is limited since we moved to a small bungalow.

I am married, have two Schnauzers and I collect 'real life' baby dolls.

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

Have got hold of a very old Victorian coach built pram , Cannot find anything like it on the web ,seems to be pre 1900 and all constructed in wood and ply .

All coach lined painted in a light karki and black . Looks like it could have been made for twins ?  all fittings are brass ?

Not very cyber so have to get help if anyone wants to see a photo as found .

All there save one hood stay in brass .

have a feeling it was very ,very old as wheels and spokes are not as cycle wheels construction .

Anyway it is neering completion save for making a suitable hood .

Any help with hood material welcome .

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

Hi my name is Jerrie and I am a Reborn  artist at Memories Reborn Nursery I have been reborning for a couple of  years now and love the art.  I used to be a make-up artist and was based at Harrods, I've been fortunate enough to have worked for most of the big cosmetic and perfumery houses. 

 

When I retired I did a hairdressing course and got my NVQ as you may have realised I can't keep still, I always have to try my hand at something.  However, art has always been a part of my life and I do get a great deal of satisfaction from it.  I love to reborn and bring those vinyl sculpts to life and I put alot into each baby. 

 

I'm at present on the look out for a coachbuilt pram similar to the one I had when my son was born,  that is what has lead me to your fantastic site.  I look forward to chatting with you all and browsing this informative site.
