Bogie coffee table

Here is a very old vintage industrial turn of the century, polished steal and wood ‘bogie’ cart trolley once used on the factory floor of a old English Ship yard.

These carts were hand built at the turn of the century to fit the train tracks installed on the factory floor. They were used to transport the ship rope that was being produced for all the main shipping companies at the time. The proper name for this item is a “Bogie” (Old railway word describing – an assembly of four or six wheels forming a pivoted support at either end of a railway coach).

This is a one off item and I have never come across anything similar. They are incredibly heavy duty and were built to last. This bogie would be a real star piece in any house, flat or warehouse as a coffee table. The top has a thick sheet of steal that has been cleaned back and polished, as have the steal corners. 1.5-inch thick wooden sections have been placed on top of the metal originally for grip. This has been sanded and polished with bees wax for a smooth shiny rustic finish. The original green metallic paint on the metal chassis have been cleaned as have the large nylon wheels.

Can be used as anything from a coffee table, TV stand or clothes display in a shop.

Dimensions in inches:

48 in length x 36 in width x 12.5 in tall x 1.5 in tick wood sections x 7.5 in wide wheels
