This cart has the teardrop wheel style with the Lineberry name cast into the iron, and the part numbers cast into the corner hardware. The top deck is all original Oak, and it shows the history of its time in factory work. The scrapes and scratches down its length add a depth not found in the prolific reproduction versions. The Early American stain brings out the natural Oak color with a touch of warmth. Adding to the character of the surface is the depth and range of grain patterns, from straight to waves to even a quarter-sawn tiger oak appearance. The stencil has faded into the wood, but can still be read. The hardware has been polished to bring out its aged patina. This wood top of this cart measures 27 inches wide by 48 inches long, and stands 16 inches tall.

The rich dark color of the cast iron hardware is polished to a shine. The large part numbers stand out proud. The wood top measures 27 inches wide by 48 inches long, and stands 16 inches tall.
This table has so many amazing details, I’m not sure I can fit them all in this description. The Daisy style wheels, sometimes called tulip, floral, or fleur-de-lis, are quite scarce, as are the ESP corner brackets, so named for their part number, cast in relief. These brackets project lengthwise down the cart, unlike the standard square brackets, giving the cart a lengthened appearance. The iron has darkened to a deep black over the decades from factory work, giving it an air of a long history. The dark, chocolatey chestnut color of the original top accentuates the unusually wide boards - they don’t make trees like this anymore. The faded stencil on the side is original - reading DML Inc. Lineberry Div. The wood top measures 27 inches wide by 48 inches long, and the cart stands 15 inches tall. The corner brackets add another 6 inches to the overall length of the cart.
Here is a Lineberry cart with a rich golden Red Oak finish. The boards on the top deck were softened to remove the rough edges. The stencil is original to the cart, though quite faded.

A beautiful combination of rough rustic and sophisticated shabby-chic. Dimensions: 27 x 48 x 15 inches.
This oversize cart measures 30 x 60, for a large, statement-making coffee table. The original wood on the top deck has a range of colors, grains, and textures, which speak to the age and long use of this cart.

Amazing wide boards, a sleek, dappled Oak surface. The antique Oak is original, and so are the color variations in the grain and the scattered traces of tan pigment.
