Product Description

A superb and rare original factory trolley…

This is an exquisite piece! Recently reclaimed from a family run factory, this trolley is magnificent in its its current form. Dating to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930s, this original piece was made by Excelsior Fibre Co. Ltd of Lancashire, England. This particular piece was owned by Hocking & Ring Ltd, the original labels giving this piece some brilliant provenance. We understand that this company (no longer trading), used to make clothing for Liberty of London…

Probably used in the factory itself for storage or transporting pieces, the the trolley (or cart) is in wonderful condition. The original build sits on its original cast iron base, and still has functioning wheels which are free moving. Made in a moulded hard wearing plastic, the trolley is complemented with wooden supports and iron fasteners. The interior still shows the original paper, and both original leather handles are present. It’s rare to see such an early and used piece in such fine condition…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars to the surface and some tatty areas inside. It is a little dirty in places, yet we think the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity and doesn’t impact the function of the trolley. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A perfect piece as a coffee table, storage solution or a magnificent display piece for one’s home or a retail setting
