Velocipede - Maker Unknown - Dutch or French 1869

A nicely preserved velocipede that has a very similar frame design to some surviving machines from Holland as well as France. No evidence of a makers plate and unmarked. Nice original paint and pin stripe (carriage lining). This machine was displayed in a motorcycle/bicycle shop for many years in the North of England. The shop was Davies Cycles & Motors at 6 Cuppin Street, Chester. The shop is pictured below and dates to the 1950's.
