HI All

I've always been facinated by these large Coach built prams, I though I would rewnovate one I found in an old yard.

Guess what! They are breeding! I now have 3 and I live in a 2 bed flat!


So will need some advise for renovating them.

I can send some pics if needed.


Cheers and thanks for a great site

At this time I am looking for the four white leather straps that hold the body of the carriage onto the wheel frame. We have this exact same pram and I would really like to put new straps on it.  Do you know how or where I could get these items?  Thank you so very much....Cheers Diane

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 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

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?

Hi,

My name is Jillian and I live in Derby, England.  I am pleased to be able to join this website today, after spending many happy hours browsing at all the lovely prams, and the photographs of the Steam Shows.  I am an older mum, and live with my husband and our two daughters, aged 12 and 7.  I used a coachbuilt pram for both of them, and became quite well known in the area, whilst out shopping, and of course, leisurely walks in the park.  It helped to keep me quite fit, it was lovely.  I was so impressed by this site, I asked to join, and look forward to learning more about these beautiful prams that are so cherised by their owners.  The picture I have added is of the pram I used for my girls (a little worn now), and in it is my daughters reborn doll Euan (I don't quite know if I've spelt it right).  Looks quite realistic doesn't he?  Anyway, I'll close now, and look forward to being a member on this lovely site.

Jillian.

Just bought a silver cross Silver Stream.  It needs some TLC.  Just fancied owning another coachbuilt, even though I am in my fifties.   I thougt I had gone insane, until I found this website and realised that I was not alone.......

About Me

I live in the mountains of North Carolina, USA......hence, the bear image.

 

I have a chocolate brown Marmet pram that I bought in 1973.  My children are all grown, but, I can't seem to part with my Pram.  It sits in my dinning room.....and sometimes my cat "Cally" will take a nap there....sometimes I wish I was small enough to take a nap in it myself!

 

I like Needlepoint, Knitting, Quilting, Orchids.....I'm learning to play the Lute, but, I think I will change to the lever Harp......I'm trying to do all the things I wanted to do when I was younger and didn't have the time or means.........now, time is running out, and I can't do them all..........I don't like getting old.

 

That's me......in a nutshell~

I've been looking for a real vintage English pram since my boys(21 & 18) were babies.  I had a 3 in 1 Canadian Gendron for them.   I only found my first "real" pram about 5 years ago, when I "found" ebay.  Since then my collection has grown, as has my knowledge of prams.  I love the 50's to early 60's prams the best.
