Urban Remains - 1892 Museum Quality American Folk Art Hand-Crafted Street or Trolley Car

Remarkably rare and highly individualistic late 19th-century American folk art small-scale or miniature city street or trolley car. The hand-crafted trolley was meticulously assembled in January of 1892 by O.R. Jones of Youngstown, Ohio for son H.O. Jones and later presented to grandson William S. Jones in 1934. The delicate but completely intact street car is comprised mainly of wood with tin roof and heavy gauge metal wire used for supporting the overhangs and handrails.
