We own a fence company in Southeast Louisiana and do a lot of property clearing. This was given to us by an 81 year old customer whose husband collected antiques.
She said he obviously thought it of value because he built an 8x10 shingle roofed shed with a limestone pad specifically for it.
It weighs well over 400 pounds (we took it out with a forklift) The removable top is oak with a hole in the center and metal strapping (top alone about 100lbs). There are pulley wheels on the sides as though to slide something across them.. No marking or branding that we could see.
I've done some looking and found very few of the 3 wheel carts online. Both my husband and I are just terribly curious to know it's origin and use, were there any factories down here, was it manufactured in Louisiana? Any info or ideas of places to look would be much appreciated. More pics attached. Thanks!!
Look what I found!?
Unfortunately, there was not much information available, but this has to be a related piece....extended family member?
Was watching an antique window glass blowing documentary on PBS and they were making gigantic blobs of glass preparatory to making window glass. As the blob came out of the furnace it was placed on a 3-wheeled vehicle that looked like yours and pulled about 20 feet for the next step. The scene lasted about 2 seconds so I can't be sure.
