What are antique brass tea trolleys used for?

Antique brass tea trolleys don’t have to be used for alcohol. You can use them to serve up a delicious afternoon tea to your guests too. Add plates of sandwiches, cakes and biscuits, and serve them up using an antique tea and coffee set.

Versatile antique drinks trolleys

Antique drinks trolleys are having their comeback moment. Consider a glass drinks trolley or a brass equivalent. But they don’t just need to be used for drinks. Most have wheels so are easy to move between rooms, but there are plenty of permanent homes for them to enjoy around the house. Use them as a bedside table, or some of our larger options can be used as an antique sideboard, shelving or a media unit. Antique drinks trolleys with wheels can also be used next to the bath to hold your towel, drinks and a book, or as extra storage space in an office or kitchen.
