Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A toy lawnmower retailed by Gamages c1914. The wording in the catalogue is worth repeating, "The knives revolve in exactly the same way as a big Mower and it is quite easy to push. A polished handle is fitted, and the metal work is finished in blue, green, red, and black enamel; the knives in aluminium paint. The whole is neatly cardboard boxed. It is not intended to cut much grass, but it snips off some, so may be truly said to cut grass." The price in 1914 was 6/3d with grassbox and 4/11d without.
