Scarce ‘Chummy Dream’ Collapsible Stroller'; Sakai

DOE AND HOPE
The ingenious folding or collapsible infants stroller, marked to the rear ‘Chummy Dream Stroller Sakai’, the cream, blue and red plastic body with foam filled vinyl seat, four rubber wheels by Bridgstone and rear storage flap, collapsing into suitcase form and surviving from mid-century Japan.

The stroller is in good overall order with the mechanisms working as they should. There are scratches and knocks as one would expect.

Sakai’s patent for this stroller in 1969 reads; ‘carriage according to this invention in the form of a rectangular suitcase with a backrest and wheels which are retractable, thus making it easy to carry, the wheels extended or retracted being positively locked in a proper position’.

The ingenious way the stroller is disguised in suitcase form is wonderfully imaginative and typical of Japanese space saving thinking. The colours are brilliantly sixties, and it is inherently Japanese in its construction and design.

Brilliantly encapsulating the design led Japanese mind and very much of the period.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
