Description
Calesse (cart) Neapolitan from the antique market, original (1) - Wood - late 19th / early 20th century
Italy

Very rare Neapolitan market calash (cart) from the 1800s made of wood
Wheels in iron and wood, original from the time.
Dimensions:
- Length 280 cm
- Height 80 cm
- Width 100 cm

This cart was used by my great-grandfather Giuseppe, who was a farmer, and to bring his products to the market every morning he loaded them on this cart.
Preserved by my grandfather and then my father, we now put it up for auction exclusively on Catawiki.

A piece of great sentimental value for us, but that unfortunately can no longer be kept by any member of my family, due to its size.

Great ideas for display in restaurants, holiday farms, stables or other places where the local products are the protagonists.
Cart is in good overall condition, please see photos that are an integral part of this description. It surely has some signs of age and it needs a restoration, if you want to ‘refurbish’ it.

Pick up on site by the buyer, because shipping is really impossible.
