Historical information

This pusher was made in 1917 for twins named Ron and Oswald Warburton, from the Warrnambool area. From the design it appears that it could have been hand made or come from a wheelwright or coach factory.


This item is of considerable significance as it has local provenance and it is a bespoke item which makes it one of the rare items in our collection.
