Vélocipède ca. 1870 

This is an English pattern bicycle with its original 36-inch front wheel in remarkably good condition with its original enamel finish.
The 30-inch rear wheel is a quality replacement, and also in good fettle.
The bearings have been refurbished, and the steering head is sound; the seat support has apparently been replaced.
The twist grip 28-inch handlebars have turned oak grips, and also featured are triangular pedals, hock rests and a brake.
A much later 20th century candle lamp is fitted.
