Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1970s, this is an original trolley by Besway. Complete with its original label and catalogue, this piece is quite the functional and on trend item today. The good looking mix of teak and chrome, is outnumbered by the quick transformation this piece makes with the simple pull of a lever!
With the trolley in its original form (narrow, with a top and bottom shelf), one can simply pull the chrome lever located on the bottom shelf, to lift it up to form one sold top (or a table top finish). Tricky to explain without a video, but essentially a smooth movement allows this piece to shift from a narrow trolley into a nice wide coffee table. An excellent piece of mid century engineering!
We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally it is in really good shape and the movement to form the table is smooth, and locks in place as one would expect. There are some surface scars and abrasions, and the chrome is blemished in areas. We have only wiped a cloth over it, so we believe with some extra TLC, this could be transformed. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and character, Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections
Condition : Structurally good, surface scars and scratches, a little wear and tear commensurate with age, some surface imperfections, some blemishes to the chrome
