Yngve Ekstrom teak trolley c 1960 by Kallemo Sweden
A stylish well designed piece by Yngve Ekstrom who is best known for his chair designs including the famous Lamino chair which is still produced today over 60 years after it was designed .
Apparently this trolley or bar cart as they’re described in the US was designed in 1959 and was produced by the quality Swedish company of Kallemo in the early 1960s . In the UK we’d probably describe it as a drinks or cocktail trolley .
It’s been cleaned and oiled and is looking great . The black laminate is in good vintage condition as are the original wheels . We like the sliding dropleaf extension and its practicality as the black laminate simply wipes dry after spills . It’s stamped Made in Sweden .
As often is the case with known pieces prices on the internet vary amazingly . We found one in Sweden priced at £814 , and one on First Dibs in the US at $1358 ! However 2 more in the US were on websites priced more sensibly at $535 and $665 . We’ve priced ours at only £275 as we think this is right for the UK market . If you want more info on Yngve Ekstrom ( 1913-1988 ) you’ll find plenty online .
