Decorator Albany Cutter Sleigh
(77"Lx43"Wx46.25"H, 37" runner
This is the ultimate in Albany Sleighs. It has the
tight bend in the top of the dash. The original dash was broken and
this is a new one made in the traditional manner as the original including
eagle heads and rein rail.
The wood part of the runners was replaced with new steam
bent ones. This sleigh is over 100 years old; thus, the deteriorated
runners. The runners could have been repaired; however, our efforts
in restoration warrant the sleigh to be ready for "the most spirited
The original paint was removed by sanding to bare
wood. The original milk paint and lead based primers do not
chemically agree with the high quality paints available today. This
primer is ready for sanding and should be re-primed again to ensure the
ultimate final finish.

Decorator Albany Cutter Sleigh
(77.50"Lx37"Wx46"H, 36" runner
This bobsleigh has great potential. It is unrestored
and very restorable. The running gear is of a unique design.
Along with the body, the gear needs some attention, too. All of the
iron and wood parts are in place which greatly enhances a restoration
process. It comes with a pole and the associated parts for a hook-up
of a pair of horses. I find no obvious dry rot. A cosmetic
reconditioning will make this a unique and beautiful sleigh.

This is a very exceptional sleigh. It weighs less
than 100 lbs. This is a rare sleigh that has patent number brass
tags and the original brass name tag. The sleigh is black and has
wool button-tufted upholstery. It has never been in the snow since
restoration. The sleigh was made by Martin Payne, Troy, NY.

This Hudson Valley Vis-A-Vis Sleigh has been restored
professionally by Woodlyn Coach, Ivan Burkholder, approximately 7 years
ago. It has never been used after the restoration and it has been
stored in a carriage friendly environment. The sleigh was manufactured
by "C. Witty, Broadway, N.Y." and has original name tag. It
also has the hardware and inner support (body construction under the
upholstery) for a carriage style fold-up top.
The sleigh has the pole and necessary single trees
attached to the sleigh for a pair of horses. There is an underslung
four-wheel dolly for ease of moving and handling.
The sleigh was restored with colors and upholstery that
were appropriate when it was built new.
This vehicle is very structurally sound and ready for the
most spirited pair of horses.
The sleigh can be seen at our facility near St. Louis,

(134"Long x 51" Wide x 63" High)
Restored Two-Passenger Cutter Sleigh. Navy blue body
and running gear. The pinstriping on this sleigh is exquisite.
Upholstery is button-tufted in navy blue wool broadcloth. Sleigh has
black carpeting, brass rein rail and original whip holder.
This sleigh is very rare and unique. Two (2) bolts
free the body from the running gear. The design allows the entire
sleigh to be taken through a 24" door! Remove
the two bolts in the front of the body, lift the back of the body to free
a wood hold strap and slide the body forward about 1/4". The
body is less than 25 pounds and it simply lifts off. The total
weight of the sleigh is less than 100 pounds.
The sleigh was manufactured by a well-known company and
built around 1895. This sleigh has a serial number.
The company, after building sleighs, built electric automobiles.
This sleigh is over 100 years old and does not have any
dry rot -- it's ready for a lively horse and snow! It has been
professionally painted with high-quality automotive paint and
professionally pinstriped. Even the button-tufted upholstery is over
a very high-quality base. The photos say it all!
