Park Drag

Park Drag

Vehicles such as the 1892 Park Drag exhibit the pastimes of a bygone era. The Park Drag was a privately owned vehicle used in the United States by the very wealthy as a sporting vehicle and sometimes as a portable grandstand. Similar to public Road Coaches, a Park Drag was 300 to 400 pounds lighter and the rear seat was only wide enough for two liveried grooms. The ladies and gentleman enjoyed the fine view from the seats on the top.

 

This unusual piece is painted black with cream lower panels, red risers, and red carriage parts. The cushions are trimmed in corduroy. Wood hubs, iron tires and mail axles support telegraph springs and perch. This piece is complimented by large candle lamps, three lead and two spare bars, a ladder, drag shoe, pole, umbrella basket, two tin lined picnic boxes on coasters and a felt-lined box for crystal.
