Imperial Carriage Museum
Vienna, Austria

The carriage is a “dormeuse” in which a double bed could be set up. Special features of the travelling carriage are the sturdy wheels and springs, the double hanging straps, the cast-iron brake shoes, the fold-out mountain braces at the back and the suitcases fixed to racks on the roof and at the back. Features of an imperial carriage are the rich gilt and the exquisite decoration of the chassis and metal parts. Court Saddlers’ Workshop (Vienna) © Monica
