This cart was used to hold the family record player. The lower level of the cart has wire slats for the purpose of holding the record albums. In later years, after television was invented, the cart could be used to hold a small black & white tv.
The cart is made of a light metal, with plastic wheels. The two end pieces on the top slide in order to adjust the width.
The cart is in pretty good shape, with a few rust spots. The plastic wheels have a couple of spots where paint from the floor rubbed off on them.
Not only a historic relic from the past, the cart still has the functionality to be useful today.
Here are the measurements of the cart:
It is 16.75 inches wide and 18 inches deep at the wheels, which is the widest and deepest part.
The bottom shelf is 15.75 inches wide and 16.5 inches deep.
It tapers as it gets higher. It is 12 inches deep at the top. The width can vary, as the end pieces slide, with a maximum of 26 inches wide.
It is about 25 inches tall, with the end pieces sticking up about another two inches. The bottom shelf is about nine inches off the floor.
