Original Vintage Ercol Model 505 Drop Leaf Serving / Drinks Trolley

At a first glance, a curious vintage offering from Ercol (and they did make some unusual hybrids!) dating from the late sixties / early seventies but actually this is a really useful and practical piece, particularly for a home where space is tight. Featuring three shelves / trays, there’s plenty of storage to stow books, magazines and more. The drop leaves can then be extended either for use as a generous serving trolley which can be wheeled around with ease; or for use as a small dining table, folding neatly away when you’re done. It also makes a super bedroom stand or bathroom unit.

This is an original, used piece that is ‘sold as seen’.  It is in excellent, vintage condition. We have lightly polished the piece but have otherwise left the original factory finish well alone. There are very few age-related marks. It is solid and sturdy, with no signs of any historic damage or repair. The leaves fold up and down with ease with their hinges in good order. Likewise, the signature Ercol arms slide out underneath with ease to support the leaves. The original castors roll with ease and are in good working order for easy movement. Although it no longer has the maker’s sticker, it is unmistakably Ercol. Please see our photos overall for an accurate sense of the super condition.
