This page provides images of a form of litter (which we sometimes call a “palanquin” or “sedan chair”) generally used as a form of luxury transportation. Unlike a wagons or carriages, these have no wheels. In most cases, this type of litter is borne by a horse at the back and a horse at the front. They sometimes appear with rich textiles and soft cushions.

I have divided up litters by their functions and usages in each illustration, so that they are easier to compare within similar contexts. Those used to carry goods are on the handbarrows linkspage, and those that are used to transport the incapacitated, wounded, ill, elderly, dying, or dead can be found with the biers & stretchers.
