Vintage Davos Snow Sledge on Metal Runners / Vintage Toy / Shop Display
A vintage Davos sledge with a wooden frame on metal runners with Davos branded on the wooden slats, traditionally fashioned from ash wood.
The history of the world renowned Davos sledge started in the 19th century. Carpenters from Davos worked on further developing the Norwegian sledge. The sledge was given its name at the first, historic toboggan race in 1883 in Davos, Switzerland. At that time, daredevil sledge pilots hurtled on Davos sledges down the snow-covered streets from Davos-Wolfgang into Klosters. The same year, the English poet and literature critic John Addington Symonds founded and presided over the Davos International Toboggan Club. At that time the club was still known as the "Davos Toboggan Club".
In perfectly worn and used vintage condition as expected and forming the charm and character of this very special item.
