Created in Bill Hudson's Guild School class, this was Tori's first attempt at making anything
with metal (and using a lathe, and wicker work and...)
  Fortunately, Mr. Hudson was a very patient teacher!

The baby carriage was patterned after the Bauer and Karuse Cabriolet, with wood body
and wicker seat.  A similar carriage was shown in the movie "Gone With the Wind".
As the carriage is pushed, the horse rocks forward and backward.

The only thing that wasn't created in class was the horse itself, which was an unfinished
resin casting made by Mr. Hudson.  The rest was entirely scratch built, including the
wire-spoked wheels, rocking cam and mechanism, frame, seat, handlebar, etc., etc.
