I recently purchased 3 of these wooden carts at auction. The auctioneer said they were railroad carts. I have researched quite a bit online and can not find anything like them. There is no information on the carts themselves. They have 1 swivel caster on each end and 1 stable caster under the front and back. I loved the patina on the wood. Believe they are made out of mahogany and oak. They are very well built. The boards have 4 flathead screws in each board. The screws look as old as the wood. Hoping someone knows what they were really used for. You can only turn the box on each end due to the stable swivels in the front and back. Thought maybe they were mail carts or warehouse carts also. Would appreciate any feedback.
