A number of sleds, of which few obviously survived, were sometimes made of boiled cardboard. However, these entertainments were not unique to France and many European courses enjoyed these winter activities.There is very little iconography on this subject. This aesthetic is of course akin to the mythology of the ancient tank and has great analogies with the known boat projects to navigate the great canal at Versailles. The French mercury of February 1729 gives us an idea of the splendour of these events: the Marquis de beringhen, the king's first ecuyer, walked at the head on a large sled pulled by four horses to pave the way... All this joins the sound of the brass bands. Madame campan, the first maid of the Marie antoinette queen, recalls in her memoirs the \"noise of the bells and bells whose harnesses of the horses were trimmed, the elegance of their plumes, the variety of forms of these species of cars, the gold of which they were all enhanced. The queen took part in sled races that reminded her of her Austrian youth. The item \"early 19th wooden brush painted Dutch décor\" is on sale since Sunday, November 15, 2020.
