The oldest cap in the Hubcap Gallery is from a Chinese war chariot and is a bronze artifact and dates to the period known as Warring States (475-221 BC). The Hub cap is approximately 75 mm in diameter and 26mm in width.

Very few parts of Chariots remain as only axle caps, ornaments of the yoke and the rear pillars of the seating box were made of bronze.
