Major Score: Bagues Brass Bar Cart

I've always wanted a brass bar cart in my house. I lust a sumptuous bar nook filled with sparkly glassware and colourful liquor bottles. On Saturday as Anthony was driving us to this year's Christie Antique Show, I did my regular browsing on CList on my iPad and came across this Maison Bagues vintage brass bar cart/tea trolley. Sadly, it was in London Ontario, a long way from Christie Lake where the antique show was. I felt so bummed out that I had to yet again miss another brass bar cart. Anthony suggested that we went anyway because if I changed my mind later on it would've been a much longer drive from home. And boy, wasn't I glad I went through with it! 

This vintage brass bar cart is jaw dropping gorgeous! The owners said they bought it from a jewelry store in the 60s and rarely used it so it's kept in mint condition. A Maison Bagues bar cart of similar style is going for $2,300 on 1stdibs

I love the filigree details along the raised rim of the gallery trays. 

I can think of so many ways to style this new baby. 



Stay tuned for the reveal. 

We didn't end up going to the Christie Antique Show on our way back, but I think the bar cart probably more than made up for it. Did you go to the show? How was it this year?
