1968 Marmet Queen
A Marmet Queen was on the top of my list of prams to buy. Somehow I always expected to get a navy blue one, so when I saw this one I was delighted (although I would still love a navy blue one!). The Queen had very little wrong with it when I bought it, it had been kept for many years in the nursery of a lovely house, so there were no issues of damp or rust.
It started life as a white pram and the body, presumably because it is wooden, seemed to have faded to a lovely cream, while the chassis was still white. Because there was not a mark on the body, I decided to have the chassis powder coated in cream to match. The body is finished of with triple coachlines in navy blue.
This pram has impressive measurements. A body measuring 43 1/2 inches in length overall by 21 inches wide. Height of the hood is 52 inches and length including the handle is 53 1/2 inches. Wheels sizes are 24 and 20 inch.
I do like a nice big pram!
