Regency Era Horse Carriage

A print of the “Elliott’s Patent Eccentric Landaulet or Chariot” was featured in an 1809 issue of "The Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions and Politics", a publication commonly known as Ackermann's Repository (1809-1828). The Chariot horse carriage was a light four-wheeled horse carriage popular in the early 19th century. This horse carriage was used for occasions of ceremony or for pleasure. This particular model was more compact than others of the day and was distinguished by being “without perch, wings, axle-tree beds, transom beds, or plates; so that the weight is much reduced, and the horses are spared considerable toil and labour.”
