Roller Skates, circa 1910s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a rather unusual and rare pair of three-wheeled roller skates from the early 20th century. They are made of metal, with hard-rubber treads on the wheels; each skate is 16 inches long. There is no makers mark. Some research brought up skates with a similar three wheel arrangement. The three wheel style lasted a few short years circa 1910. I assume that the concept did not work very well. As an interesting display they work fine.
