Here is an old Dutch horse sleigh game to see on the ice.
The type of sleighs in this video are the Tikkers (Tikkers are the people and farmers sleighs).
These games are very old and gos back to the golden ages of Holland by doing this.
Note the clothing of the people.
The video looks to be taken in Friessian province.
Every province in Holland people had there own kind of clothing.

No better day to start up with an coople old horse sleigh videos.


Here is an Christmas tune with an Dutch cowfarmer bringing his milk to the market somewhere in the 50’s surround with old dutch ice scenes and Dutch farms in the snow.
Notice the two lady’s holding each others hand and doing somekind of swier dance skate next to each others.
Now that kind of skating is slowely fading away.

Here is another one for the Smokstakers..

This one gos further back in time 1940.
It gos about the old beach an circuit city Zandvoort before the war.
They are doing horsesleigh games thru the beach town and arround half way the video gos over thru very old car skiining along the boulevard next to the beach.

All these horse sleigh games where an lot done in the old Holland (province South and North Holland towards Friesland).

I have notice that most sleighs are tikkers aswel in the other video posted yesterday.

At the moment this beach city having huge problems with to many Deeres.
During the night the Deeres comes out of the forrests and start seaching for food in town.

Here is 1923 The Hague also once laying in the old Holland.

Arround half way the video the horse sleighs will be comming up again surround by old wealthy rich people and family’s.





Once was Holland the biggest horsesleigh country in the world because of many things like rich after the golden age, an lot water / lakes, chanels/ ponds, cold winters and the biggest skate events.

Slowely all this beautiful sleigh history is going lost and fade away.

Only the Leek collection have an large line of those horse sleigh saved for the future generations.

Going to bring this up,


Found an realy stunning new beautiful one.........


This video was made begin of the 60’s on the front porch of an very beautiful rich estate in Breukelen not far from us.

In the 60 this hobby was already dying found that out in an old farmers article in the same time.

Most of these fabulous sleighs are gone now.

There is one Louis XVI Ramshead sleigh one SjeesAr and Tikkers in the video with an American Flag aswel.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tpYhF-ZtXY



Jaap was here yesterday,

He came to vizit to watch the little horse sleigh museum.
He was stunning and happy what he saw.


He hopes to bring the King Willem Anna Pavlovna Tzar Child sleigh after restauration next week.



We are on the hunt after 2 new horse sleighs.

They are from the old Dutch golden age time.

Only 7 horse sleighs dit survived from the old golden age in Holland.

About these 2 sleighs.
One came from an antique dealer.

The other is an wrek from an old castle.

I am the most intrested in the wrek from the castle.
The biggest treasures are mostly hidding in the wreks.


Keep you all up to date when there is news in the end of next week.

Yust reseved Email from Jaap.

It realy Looks now the little child push sleigh wil be arriving next week.


Then about the Napoleon Empire Style Sleigh.

The scedule is to have it finish next Christmas or winter.
This wil be an realy eyecacher and an real horseice thrown one of an kind in the horse sleigh world.



Coming back on the golden age sleigh.

Like i told there are two of them to focus on.

Both of them are Amsterdammers.
The sleighs that showed up on or arround the golden bend in Amsterdam during the golden age.
Right in or close after the Rembrandt time.

The first one is having ancient paintings on the side with somekind of gods / naked men.
Wel i am not realy nuts about the paintings.
But it was normal in that time to paint such an figures on the side.
It also does not have an bow statue.

Most of the Amsterdammers dat have survived does not have an bow statue enymore.


Think i am not going to buy that one.



Now the other one.


This one is an real wrek but some of the paiting are still to see.
Most of them are all woman and girls sitting under trees and in the fields with beautiful dresses out of the golden age time.
The wood is rough and thick how it shoult be in the golden age with amazing beautiful decorations in the French style.
The sleigh is gigantic big and an lot of part of the under sections are gone.
The uppersection lays deep on the ice like the most early horse sleigh are.
It is all in the ancient gold colour.
And the most exiting is that it is having an gigantic huge bow statue.
It is an golden ancient Griffin.


I only have seen 2 Amsterdammers with an big bow statue ever.
One was on the old postcard painting.

http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=159062

The other is in the Leek collection with an big Dianne woman godin of the hunters with Arrow and bow in her hand.


We have an option on this wrek.
There wil not be an second one showed up like this one and with this sleigh we can make an Dutch line against the French line with an competition of who buld the most beautiful ancient horse sleighs ever in the world.

Think it wil be all hens on deck for us to pul this sleigh in next year towards our collection.

Coming back the end of next week.
