Deco DC3 Aero Art Cocktail Trolley Cart with Rare Serving Tray


Created by Frantz Industries of Los Angeles in 1938, the aero art cart was used for service on the DC3 airplane, the first of the commercial airplanes in America. Made of bakelite and aluminium, they were strong but lightweight. The streamlined form blended seamlessly with the modern aircraft interior, as well. This example has the very difficult to find serving tray. The tray lifts off the cart, and has holders for eight glasses, four shot glasses, four bottles, and an ice bucket. The cart and tray are in excellent original condition, and the cart retains its' original decal tag. Tray measures: 8" tall, 14" wide, and 24" long. The cart dimensions are listed below.
