dog sleigh

Wooden dog sled made up of two long slats of wood, side by side, which curve up and back over at one end, and are held in place by lengths of leather which are attached to a wooden baton on the base. More of these wooden batons run along the length of the sled, at right angles to the main strips of wood. These are held in place by strips of leather and plant fibre string. Lengths of this string also run along the outer edges of the sled, between each wooden baton. On the top curve, around where the leather passes through, there are eight metal screws.
