Albany Two Seat Sleigh 1/3 scale model

This sleigh is a very good reproduction of one built by Mr. Abram Acker of Sing Sing, New York in 1878.  It is shown as No. 88 fashion plate in "The Hub" magazine that year as illustrated in Susan Green's book entitled HORSE DRAWN SLEIGHS.  It is a beautiful, compact and well proportioned Albany 4 passenger sleigh.  It is striped with plain colors in as neat and simple a manner as possible.  The trimming is a little more elaborate with tufted upholstery.  Currently there are only eight of the miniature reproductions in existence.

Sugarloaf Mountain Sleighs are hand made from the same woods originally used in the full size sleighs.  Oak and Ash are steam bent for the running gear and Poplar and other soft woods are used in the body.  The Iron stays and scrolled runner heels are hand forged. The seat and carpet are velour. The eagle heads are hand molded.  Multiple coats of paint produce the deep luster of the old carriages and sleighs. The striping and fine lining are also done by hand. We can also hand paint a scene of your choice on the back panel of the sleigh if you choose.  Please see the NEXT page for a sample.  A certificate of authenticity. and brass serial number plaque come with the sleigh.
