Antique Rockaway Horse Drawn Carriage ; Historically classic black with red trim carriage has many originals- from the step covers to the diamond pleated fabric interior. Has the original metal plate reading "J.D. Eckenrode, Westminster, Maryland."

History from the Seller:
This light-low buggy is splendid !!  It originated in Long Island, New York around the 1880’s.  It was named after the village of Rockaway Queens, then a fashionable Beach Resort.  
 
Completely American in design, the Rockaway was the first closed carriage in which the driver had a roof over his head.  Its elliptical springs result in a comfortable and smooth ride.  The distinctive arch under the front wheels permit the driver to “cut under” for easy maneuvering.
 
This chariot-type of carriage was the “Rolls Royce” of carriages.  It is recognized for its extreme elegance.  The steps to get into the carriage are covered as the doors close to prevent the passengers from getting their shoes dirty.
 
This carriage was normally driven by a coachman and accompanied by footmen to assist the well-to-do passengers.
 
This particular carriage was proudly owned by William Allen Maxton from DuQuoin, Illinois.
