This set is just the pram, I got mine secondhand. My pram is made of wood, painted red, with green and gold stripes around the sides and a box seat inside it. The bottom has a brass plate covering it and the brass framework for the handle and wheels is attached to that, the handle is red painted wood. The wheels are metal and mine are double spoked, unlike most of the prams I have seen, which is why when I got it I thought it was a copy and the board agreed with that, they are also set farther forward, making the pram appear shorter. A second very careful search of eBay turned up a few prams (some in original packaging) that are identical to mine so now I know it is authentic. My pram has some dings in the wood and the plastic tires are a bit flattened and misshapen, but it is a nice piece. The pram isn't very durable as it seems to be easily chipped and the tires don't last, but it will look great with my antique doll and her doll (Samantha's Clara). A
Here it is in use, you can kind of see part of a leather lining and seat cushion a previous owner made for it.
