About Me

I live in Nottinghamshire and have loved dolls and prams since i was a little girl. I had my first black Silver Cross dolls pram when I was five years old.


When i had my two daughters i was the proud owner of a Marmet Imperial coach built pram in navy blue. How I wish i had kept that pram for any future grandchildren I may have.


I still love to look at prams, especially the large Silver Cross models. i have kept my daughters twin Silver Cross dolls pram which is white with a navy hood and apron. It only went outside once and is immaculate, inside are two beautiful Zapf dolls, I don't think i will ever part with it.


I really didn't  realise how many other people are interested in old prams, it's a fascinating world of nostalgia and bygone times.

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!
