About Me

Hello!

I'm Francie Dunlop and I live in New Zealand.

My first coach built pram was a Silver Cross that my father-in-law bought for my first. daughter. He commissioned us "to go out and search the highways and byways and find the best baby carriage for his grandaughter".  We found the pram in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. (My husband was studying at Aberdeen University at the time ,1968.) It has now served two generations and will shortly serve a third.

I have a passion for dolls prams and am just about to complete restoration of a Marmet dolls pram unknown model probably around 1940. And I have just purchased a Silver cross dolls pram identical to the full sized pram except for the hood colour.

I will post photos of these two prams soon.

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 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 .
