Before my blog was removed, I'd started to do a series (of sorts) on the different vintage homewares I've started to collect. One of the items that I'd started a post for was this chrome & formica (I believe) serving cart - I think it dates to the 1950s. It was another gift, which is lucky because I've seen these at various places and they generally cost more than I could afford right now.
Oh, and apologies if anyone got excited by the title, thinking this might have been about Mrs Slocombe et al. Ha!
I got this serving cart quite a while ago but we've had things on it and I never got around to photographing it until it needed to be dusted, so everything came off and I had the perfect opportunity to photograph it sans clutter.
I can't say with certainty that it will ever get used for its intended purpose but until the day it does (if that day comes) it is certainly a great way to display other vintage items - at the moment it's being used to show off my vintage teacup collection.
It's very simple and very much like a lot of other serving carts I've seen but I do love it a whole lot.
I think I'm starting to run out of homewares to show off...maybe I'll photograph the vintage teacup collection that is on this, one day?
