It takes skill and patience to make these things. European skill, Western patience. Portuguese silver hallmarks, of around 1900.
The guy laying in the litter is a bit damaged but, still acts as a serious patient :cool:.

Lousy pictures; will have to improve them :shrug:.

What i didn't know was that this apparatus was easily identifiable.
Originated in one of the three systems to carry disabled and wealthy people in the steep paths of Portuguese Madeira (Island); now an entertainment for tourists.
