Description

Dorothy Draper style campaign style server bar cart on casters made by esteemed US furniture maker Drexel Heritage circa 1970s. Old growth flaxen flared grain pecan top to bottom. Beautifully finished on all four sides. Faux bamboo brass corner accents on front four corners and brass pull hardware tie together British traditional and Eastern design. This server provides ample yet efficient cabinet and drawer storage. Drawers roll out effortlessly on hefty metal glides. Bisected interior cabinet space features removable and adjustable shelves. Flip-top, hinged pecan panels on top open to reveal black laminate surfaces ideal for food or bar cart service. The laminate top looks as if it was rarely used. No composite or MDF anywhere on this campaign server / bar. Drexel used a combination of solid hardwood interiors, solid pecan and pecan veneer. Ideal as a server, buffet or bar cart.

We purchased this from the original owners out of their time-capsule estate. Nearly everything in the home was by Drexel Heritage. In fact, many pieces were monogrammed with the owners name in brass plates. Purchased in the 1970s and kept in the same home until today. Every piece was pampered and this server was no exception. Cleaned and detailed inside and out.

campaign style server dimensions: 40 1/8″ wide x 19 1/8″ deep x 33″ high x 59 7/8″ wide (extended)

About Drexel Heritage:
World War II was hard on most furniture manufacturers, but Drexel Furniture was fortunate to land a government contract to supply office furniture for state side army offices. At the conclusion of the war, Drexel employees hand crafted a walnut desk inlaid with stars and his name in marble for General Douglas MacArthur to show their appreciation of his war effort on the Japanese front. A letter of thanks from the famous general is carefully stored in today’s Drexel Heritage archives.

After the war, Drexel brought David Brunn from New York to serve as their new vice-president. Brunn initiated the “key store” program, which was a successful predecessor to Drexel Heritage’s Gallery Program. Over the objections of most of his senior colleagues, Mr. Brunn brought on Betty Bailey, their first female executive. Ms. Bailey very successfully implemented a program of building close relationships with magazine editors, including House Beautiful. Mr. Brunn oversaw the merger of Drexel furniture and Heritage Furniture, a merger that proved to be exceptionally valuable for both companies. That merger solidified and made Drexel Heritage the epicenter of the fine furniture industry.
