I would like some information about a wine trolley....

I would like some information about a wine trolley or decanter trolley, the trolley itself is a double silverplate trolley with an ivory handle. The two decanters are crystal or hobnail in yellow with etched floral designs in the middle of the bottle. Jere Ann Ocker

From the photo it looks like the trolley is Old Sheffield Plate, which is a type of silver plate that is made without the use of electricity. From wikipedia;-

Judging by the style of the trolley, I believe it’s probably circa 1825.

The glass appears to be later and has a bit of a bohemian look, I’d guess around 1890 but I’m not an expert in glass. It is unlikely to be English.

Hope that helps!

The decanters look very much like Bohemiam Crystal.
