Art Deco 1930s Aero Art Cocktail Trolley Cart from DC3 Airplane


With the advent of commercial air travel in the 1930s, companies jumped on the bandwagon to supply the airlines with flight accessories. The Frantz Industries of Los Angeles, California got in early, supplying the DC3 with this stylish cocktail cart. The DC3 was the first commercial aircraft, launching in the mid-1930s. Our cart was narrow enough to navigate the aisles, and streamlined enough to compliment the interiors of this sleek aircraft. The body is made of aluminum tubes and the tops were black bakelite. The cart shows very well, and has the original label on the underside. Perfect for your private jet, or even if you do your flying on the ground!
