Edmond Spence Serving Cart for Industria Meublera


Rare rolling bar or serving cart of Cuban mahogany with integrated handles, flaring legs, a medial drawer and sides panels that can be raised or lowered. An elegant design by American designer Edmond J. Spence, produced in Mexico by Industria Meublera. Spence made a career out of translating international modern styles for the U.S. market–he designed a successful blonde wood line made in Sweden and imported by Walpole Furniture of Massachusetts. Spence’s Mexican venture, dubbed the “Continental-American Collection,” was launched by Industria Meublera in 1953. A contemporary ad boasts “superb raw materials [and] fine Mexican hand craftsmanship" both evident in this production. Branded marks underneath. Measures 60" fully extended.
