SilverCross Ambassador
I always thought this was a Wilson Deauville but even though the body is exactly the same the Wilson has larger wheels and the SX has 20x18" wheels.

Hi there;

I have an SX Ambassador as well. I purchased it from a fellow collector, who purchased it not long before, from the original family. It is in it's original conditon. A soft creamy yellow body (the paint has lost it's luster & is chipping away, unfortunately)... It is complimented with it's original navy h&a & foot extension fabric (which none of it is faded in the slightest!). It has the smaller wheels, as the beautiful green one pictured, & much as I love the larger 24" wheels on the English coachbuilt prams, it is a very large pram, & is one of my absolute fav's! I just adore it. It sits in my diningroom, which is also yellow with navy accents. I would be happy to post a pic of it here, if I can.

Take care,
Brenda

This is the very pram I always wished my parents had bought for me. Unfortunately I had to suffer being wheeled around Chislehurst Common in a frightful thing from Peter Jones, whilst posh kids in yellow minis drove past laughing at me. This really has had an unfortunately long-reaching effect and anyone whom I discover to have had one of these beautiful carriages as a baby I just cannot bring myself to talk to. This can cause difficulties, as may be imagined. Nevertheless I soldier on, but always with the nagging guilt that my formative years of transport were darkened courtesy of the John Lewis Group, a chain of stores I am even now unable to shop in. I so longed for this perambulator; who knows how different my life may have been...

I have just been given a Wilson Deauville pram which is in fairly poor condition. I have no interest in prams myself and want to use the front wheels for my daughter's trolley. However it occurred to me after looking up the pram that the body, hood (in resonable condition) etc may be of use as spares to a restorer.

Any advice would be very welcome

George

This pic was taken in my mums garden and it was of my mums wonderful big "nanny" pram. She spent a fortune having it restored, including new hood, apron and tyres. Unfortunatly she had to part with it last year. :-( It was georgous! It was from 1958

Hello Jo
Will you please thank your Mum so very much for taking this beautiful photograph of her beloved pram, it has to be one of the loveliest prams I have ever seen, hence it's appearance on the home page of this website! The Deauville is a beautifully balanced pram and a dream to push, I do feel for her having to part with such a beauty.

Kind regards

Pat.
