Vintage Italian Serving Trolley / Bar Cart by Cesare Lacca (circa 1950s)
Vintage Italian serving trolley / bar cart (circa 1950s) by Cesare Lacca. Mid-century chic, modern style and pure elegance in wood, brass and glass. Wheel your drinks and snacks out in style on this elegantly attractive piece of design history. There are three glass horizontal surfaces with wood trim and six bottle holders on the lower level. As you see in the photos, there is a removable tray to facilitate personalised serving. A richly-coloured, elegant wood covers the handles and legs with strips of brass trim. The brass and wood sport a characterful, aged patina throughout with some evident wear, scratches and minor blemishing - all that character attesting to its intriguing past. Overall it is considered in good condition commensurate with age and usage. Upon request a video of the trolley can be provided.

About the Designer: Born in Naples in 1929, Italian architect-designer Cesare Lacca created modernist furniture and metalwork throughout the 1950s. Lacca designed a great many tea carts and serving trolleys in his career as well as magazine racks and coffee tables. Almost all of Lacca’s known designs were created in the 1950s. Today, Cesare Lacca is appreciated for his contribution to the Italian design identity; his ability to fashion brass into the Italian postwar design conversation; and his timeless, highly sought-after serving trolleys.
