The cart is a very rare Globe Truck and Vise steel cart that was manufactured in 1911, the stencil of the manufacture, patent date, and date of manufacture of this cart are still visible on the wood beam that runs underneath the steel top. I also took the liberty to really clean up the beautiful cast iron wheels and apply a black paint to show off the casting detail and timeless design. Overall the cart is in fantastic condition. This is a fantastic piece of american history with some much needed stylish storage. You can check out more of my work at my store and online.
