Textable by Platex drinks trolley, clear acrylic & gilt metal in the brutalist style, foldable,1980`s ca, French.

This vintage drinks trolley has been gently cleaned and is ready to use.

This trolley was made by `Platex` a French company recognized as the `tray specialist` in Europe. The quality production & function is characteristic of the company and the original manufacturer`s label is present on the frame.

This trolley is functional and easily folded when not in use. In this example the modern materials, acrylic & gold-toned metal, make it a sophisticated complement for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary.

The frame is well constructed & stable. The metal is finished with a golden gilt. The two trays are in shiny clear acrylic with a textured pattern `ice effect` in the Brutalist style.

The mechanical closing system, unique to Platex, is easy & quick to open. By activating the push buttons on each side of the frame the trolley folds together. Similarly it easily `snaps` open.

The 4 large wheels rotate 360 degrees for maneuverability. They also have rubber bands to smoothly overcome obstacles of up to 5cm.

This trolley is in very good vintage condition. The frame is sound with no missing parts. The mechanism is fully operating. The gilt surfaces are in good condition with tiny superficial marks & minor rubbing. The acrylic trays are both in very good condition with no cracks or damages and minimal tiny superficial marks, all in line with age & wear.

Additional dimensions:

The trolley folded is: Height: 90 cm, Width: 68.5 cm, Depth: 8 cm.

The tray alone is: Width: 62 cm, Depth: 44 cm

The space between shelves is Height: 43 cm

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. For safe transport the trolley will be folded & wrapped in bubble wrap, foam and an outer layer of card. It would easily fit into a box with loose cushioning for secure shipping with a courier. We ship with reliable couriers (signed for, tracked & insured).
