  1. post chaise

    A post chaise is a type of carriage used for long-distance travel, particularly in the 18th and early 19th centuries. It was typically fast and light, drawn by two horses and designed to carry two passengers inside with the driver sitting outside. It was named "post" chaise because of its use in the postal system, where it would be driven by a series of postilions, each taking the carriage a designated stretch along a route.
