This is a wooden vintage sack barrow typically once used in warehouses and factories and railway stations around the UK. Sadly a very rare sight today. They make great props indoors and outside.
It has a heavy duty construction in oak and cast iron.
This trolley is in great condition…great usable condition.
‘Proper heavy-duty’ is certainly one term that can be used to describe this piece. Fabricated from a forged metal lower bracket, cast iron wheels with rubber tyres and a wooden frame.
We estimate this barrow is from 1920s-1940s, a great piece of history.
At Scaramanga, we tested this barrow in our warehouse. We concluded it is a very well designed and engineered piece. Actually most vintage and mid-century items often are...and that’s why we like them!
Imagine this piece as a garden display or as a retail merchandising piece.
Its condition reflects the long life it has had: the wooden handles show weather marks and the metal aspects has an aged patina - all of which adds character.
Vintage Sack Barrow size: W48cm D32cm x H100cm.
One of the handle grips is more weathered than the other.
