Russel Wright Hammered Aluminum Rolling Cart for Everlast Corp, 1940


Created in 1940 for the Metropolitan Museum "Art and Industry" exhibition, this wonderful cart flawlessly highlighted industrial design, with an artistic flair. Commissioned by the Everlast Metal Productions Corporation of NYC, American designer Russel Wright envisioned this cart with his wife Mary. She is credited with the graphic etched leaf designs, and the cart is referred to as the "Falling Leaves" pattern. Our cart is totally complete, with all aluminum elements intact. The two larger containers have double walled bodies for insulation, keeping items hot or cold. The lower containers include a open gravy dispenser, two covered condiment containers (with original spoon) and salt and pepper shakers. There is also a tray for wine bottles. All elements are removable for serving and easy cleaning. The cart is quite visual, with all the hand - hammered surfaces and joinery. The trays are well marked with the Everest stamp on the undersides.
