Curious Curios: January 28, 2014 Reveal

It’s time for the identity of our latest curio to be revealed!

This little iron wheel was once attached to a child’s toy in the 19th century.  It would have mobilized a wooden animal or toy carriage, which would have been attached to a rope or string for the child to pull around.  A nice addition to the dolls and other toys we’ve already analyzed from our Riverside project!
