Begun circa 1858, the company manufactured "high grade carriages", buggies and light road wagons. Ivers was the first outfit to add a bicycle wheel to the racing "svilky" (wheeled plows were once known as "svilky" plows), a move which helped them grow their already considerable national and international business.

VINTAGE: Circa 1880s-1890s.

SIZE: Approximately 1-1/8" in width and 4-15/16"; in length.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Chrome-plated brass, glass.

ATTACHMENT: Loop at end.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an advertising collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VABX12 LHEX12/12 SHEX12/18

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The opener has some light abrasions and specks of wear.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
