    Looks like a sledge for threshing wheat or barley to me. How big is it ?

    A seat for the navigator when she gets it wrong. It's fixed to the A Frame without wheels to make life interesting.

    Best guess is a towed rotivator that a young female could sit on for ballast. It has a mudguard to protect long flowing skirts, so it's probably 19th century.

    Interesting item - I've not seen one before. Where did you spot it @Adbt ?

    Now you've got me thinking. The styling on the wall suggests it may not be the UK we're talking about, so as a second guess I'm going for an ice breaker, possibly towed by a reindeer? Maybe Scandinavia or Russia? It is a sled after all. Then again, they'd probably just get used to ice and not bother. Hmmm.

    i dont think the hook on it would be strong enough for anything as heavey as soil rotivation and they look like blades on the rollers so maybe it cuts slots into something like cloth?although it looks to narrow for a standard width of cloth

    It's the Victorian equivalent of the modern day joy of sitting on a washing machine.
