This is more accurate dating of the buggy.
Information taken from a J. D. ad of 1913:
1838-1913 John Deere Vehicles
"Built in our St. Louis Factory"

I have a John Deere buggy, in fact it is the same one as depicted in the prior artwork. It is actually a Deere and Webber buggy, which I believe was the fore-runner of John Deere by itself. If requested I can take photo. It is very well built, but with the needs of a horse in mind because it is quite light. It is also very pretty, with many parts curved for style, rather than straight as was the norm.

I think it is great that you have one. I wonder how many survived.
And you are right, there is nothing plain jane about this buggy.

I have done restorations on several Vilie Carriages made in Moline, I believe it was Deere's son in law or something like that, anyway, I have had more than one customer tell me they were told years ago that the firm subcontracted many of the Deere Buggys. I have a Deere brouchure from the turn of the century and they do indeed look alike. I get John Deere Wagons in all the time for restorations but never carriages but Villies are everyplace so I wonder if at some point they were sold through Deere branches? I feel this is a real possibilty. Aaron
