1800’s set of 4 diminutive furniture casters in an ultra-cool double-wheel design with a luscious old patina. Swiveling and self-leveling- wheel assembly tilts from side to side, keeping wheels in contact with uneven surfaces. Hardwood wheels to be kind to your flooring. Remnants of original copper colored finish. By M. B. Schenck & Company of Meriden, Connecticut, dated 1877.
1 5/8” overall height. 1” diameter wheels in 1 5/8” wide forks. 1 1/4" mounting plates.
Thoroughly cleaned to remove light oxidation. Wood conditioner applied to wheels and mechanisms lubricated. In great functioning condition. Wood wheels do show wear and shrinkage cracks, so I'd recommend these for a miniature or small scale piece of furniture of light weight.
Interestingly, Mr. Schenck was a supporter of presidential candidate Lincoln and started his caster company shortly after returning from service in the Civil War. A great piece of authentic U.S. history!
