Seller's Notes: You are looking at a gorgeous classic Marcel Breuer Tea Cart in black and chrome! Its unique mid-century modern 3-wheel design will stand out in any home...very sexy & chic. Great for use as a bar cart or serving cart. My mother bought this piece in 1999 for $3200 and it is in excellent condition (see photos), with no notable cosmetic or functional issues. All wheels work! DIMENSIONS: H 31 1/2" x D 20" x W 40" MATERIALS: Serving cart with chrome-plated tubular steel frame. Tops in black pressurized laminate. The motion of the front wheel may cause a slight inclination of the surface. HISTORY: The Marcel Breuer Tea Cart (model B54) first appeared in the form of a prototype in a photograph dated 1928. The Marcel Breuer cart was first shown in public in 1930 at the Salon des Artiste Decorateurs where Breuer designed an "apartment for a boardinghouse/hotel" as a representative of Deutscher Werkbund. The cart made another public appearance in 1932 when Marcel Breuer designed a house for the Berlin-Bau Austellung known as the "House for Sportsmen." In 1935 the cart disappeared altogether in favor of other rather ordinary models with smaller wheels and no attribution. The trolley with three disk wheels appears in a photo of 1932 as an accessory in the kitchen of the Harnischmacher House I, in Wiesbaden. The disk-wheel trolley made its last appearance in the Highgate apartment for Mrs. Ventris, designed by Breuer in partnership with Francis Reginald York. The trolley is in the collection of MOMA and also shown at Neue Galerie, New York, New York. Thanks for looking!
