Antique English Oak Barley Twist Tea Trolley, Drop Leaf

Antique English Oak Barley Twist Tea Trolley, Drop Leaf

SWIVEL TOP, Jacobean, Tiger Oak, Beaded trim, 2 tiers

Direct from England, purchased in a recent English container sale, this listing is for a fabulous antique English oak rolling cart or tea trolley. The trolley (or rolling bar or server) features:

· fabulous barley twist posts and legs;

· Drop leaf table that "swivels" to enlarge and engage the leaves;

· Beveled edges around the SOLID OAK top and leaves;

· a lower shelf for additional storage, with beaded trim on the lower front;

· matching beaded trim on both lower side stretchers;

· raised "gallery" edges on three sides of the lower shelf;

original rolling casters, functioning properly;

· "H" stretcher bars on the bottom for added stability and strength.

The trolley (or side table) has beautiful quarter sawn ("tiger") oak wood grain with a rich, dark finish.

This is the oldest type construction for a tea trolley and I estimate it to be from 1910-1930.

The trolley measurements:

28 ½"H x 25 ½" x 16 ½";

TOP SIZE WITH BOTH LEAVES EXTENDED OUT, 37" x 25 ½;

Lower shelf area, 13 ¾" x 22 ½";

floor to the top of raised edge on the lowest shelf, 12 ½".
