Agricultural Farm Made Trolley Using WW2 Tracks

HEIRLOOMS by LAWRENCE
A completely unique trolley that a farmer in Montgomeryshire, Wales made in the 1930s utilising World War One tracks in order to transport milk churns over muddy and rough ground. The tracked assembly with rollers look to be from a ww2 carbon arc search light. Generally used in conjunction with anti aircraft fire.
It has beautiful wear and tear. The whole item has been dismantled and cleaned off and had the metal burnished rather than sand blasted so as to retain the agricultural / industrial look of the metal. The wooden top has been oil soaked in the past and most of this has been removed and now waxed for a natural look. The tracks roll nicely and it is very manoeuvrable, the centre cast iron wheels are cast with the letters ADWS.

The overall measurements are 58cm wide by 53cm deep and 44cm high, the bolt out the front adds 23cm to the depth and the handle bar is 83cm long, the wooden top size is 48cm deep by 34cm wide.

The front pull bar unbolts with ease which means it could be used as a coffee table or sofa table between two sofas, perfect loft apartment item. This item is and will be a talking point and there won't be another one out there so truly unique.
