A wheeled base, brass carrying handles and locking latch helped porters and stewards along the way. Open the hinged doors to reveal a magnificent storage area that includes a built-in wine rack, glass rack and shelves which are handmade from distressed maple. There are also two convenient deep red serving trays that fit snuggly in place until needed.
