Brass Drinks Trolley

Filter By

Does any piece of furniture exude Hollywood glamour and luxury quite as much as the brass drinks trolley? The earliest drinks trolleys were used in the Victorian era. However, it is worth pointing out that the very first drinks trolleys were used for tea rather than alcoholic beverages. It wasn’t until the roaring 20s when cocktails became the latest fashion that the drinks trolley took off in its current form. Although the war years saw a decline in the popularity of drinks trolleys, the 1950s and 1960s saw interest in entertaining company and with the renewed passion for socialising, the brass drinks trolley began to find its way back into households up and down the country. During the 1970s, in-built bars began to take over from the drinks trolley, and slowly they fell out of favour until recent times, when homeowners once again began to realise their potential. Not only are drinks trolleys an incredibly convenient way to serve drinks when hosting a party but they are also an extremely stylish addition to any room.

Why choose brass drinks trolleys

Although brass drinks trolleys come in different shapes, sizes and heights, they all, of course, have frames that are made from brass. They feature glass shelving and wheels to allow movement between rooms, although these may be large, small or even a combination of both.

Usually, a brass drinks trolley will have two shelves – an upper level on which glasses can be placed and a lower level where bottles of alcohol can be stored. There are, of course, variations. Some have three tiers while some have a lower shelf with holes into which bottles can be placed to avoid spillages.

Although some drinks trolleys have a single brass handle, others have two small handles – one on each side of the upper shelf – and others have no handles at all. The brass frame may be simple and minimalistic, or may have ornate detailing.

The shapes may also change. Although square or rectangular trolleys are popular, some are oval in shape. Some even come in a nest formation, with several trolleys that fit below each other for convenient storage.

Why buy vintage brass drinks trolleys?

Although in recent years the drinks trolley has seen a revival, modern pieces simply don’t have the same level of craftsmanship that you can see in a vintage piece.
