This stylish silverplate meat carving trolley was made for and used at the world-famous Hôtel Ruhl in Nice. As a whole, the trolley makes an impressive display thanks to its large, elegant form resting on a minimal, yet graceful wheeled base. Raise the lid of the trolley to reveal a generous serving area with wells for au jus and other sauces. The removable serving surface may be heated by the burner below, ensuring one's meal stays warm. Exhibiting an exceptional size and superior design, this trolley was created for those who wish to dine in style. 

The trolley would have been the perfect fit for Nice's famed Hôtel Ruhl. Built in 1913 at the prestigious address of No. 1 Promenade des Anglais, the luxury hotel was for many years a landmark in Nice. Designed by the celebrated Belle Époque architect Charles Dalmas, the Neoclassical Ruhl was outfitted in the tradition of the grand hotels of the 1920s and 1930s. At its height, the hotel attracted celebrities such as Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald; though it closed in the 1970s, it still maintains legendary status as one of history's great luxury hotels in the south of France.
