This exceptional Art Deco silver plate serving cart was made by perhaps London’s very best silversmith of the Art Deco era, Drakes Silversmiths of Brewer Street, London W1. It is a Drakes model, D6, No: 117, one of the most desirable models that they made, with the revolving top which makes it a cinch to use.

Drakes Silversmiths was a renowned firm of hotel and restaurant silver plate purveyors providing equipment to some of the most desirable establishments in London’s West End.


This truly exceptional piece is supplied in excellent fully renewed overall condition having been beautifully refurbished and repolished in our workshops. The silver parts have all been especially replated by a top London silversmith. You can check the quality of the restoration by referring to the photographs.

It is a substantial piece with a height of 125cm or 4 feet, 1 inch, a width of 120cm or 3 feet, 11 inches and a depth of 55cm or 1 foot, 10 inches. It will require quite a bit of clearance room to be circulated amongst tables in a restaurant or around your dining table at home.
