eBay watch: 1960s Boby Trolley by Joe Colombo

This is a design classic, of that there is no doubt. In fact, the Boby Trolley by Joe Colombo is still in production in reissued form – but selling for a lot more than this example.

The Boby was designed by Joe Colombo for Bieffe in 1969 and as well as being a space age classic, is also a very practical piece of furniture, which is perhaps why B-Line is still making them, selling for between £216 and £305, depending on the size you want.

This auction example looks to be one of the larger (more expensive) examples, with extra flip-out storage for your bits and pieces. It;s in red, with the plastic signature present and is described as being in 'excellent all round condition with no cracks or chips and fully operational'.

Just one problem – a small discolouration on the top, which just takes the edge off it. If you can live with that, the current price of £60 is very appealing.
