Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The cart has two exposed nails on its bottom, a piece of wood must be missing. The right front corner of the cart has been painted over in white. The edges of the cart are metal, and some corrosion has occured, so caution in handling is advisable. Overall paint has worn off in spots, the metal has been exposed in several spots. The horse is no longer attached to the cart, it has several holes in it, probably from where it attached. Some of the painted on features of the horse are worn away. The cream bottles white paint has worn off in several placesand the painted on labels are fading.
