Bars - Large Upright

This Art Deco bar is an outstanding vintage English fold open or envelope bar. This design is where the top folds out and open to create a large curved serving area and where the front doors open outward to reveal multi-tiered interior shelves.

The dimensions are 33" wide (along the front and 23" wide along the rear) x 17" deep x 41 1/2" tall. The two top panels that fold out are each 17" wide and when extended provide a total serving area of approximately 67" in width along the front! Large enough to serve cocktails to large dinner parties and gatherings with ease!

This very rare example is made of a stunning bookmatched and rayflecked exotic mahogany exterior with the interior shelves and storage areas lined in the same exotic mahogany (all other cabinets of this design are walnut). The bar service top is a woodgrained formica top that allows carefree entertaining. The tops flip open and rest on two door panels that fold out from the sides to support the tops. The top bar area has a curved see-through glass panel that looks down into the bar itself. There are two shelves along with a built-in liquor storage area on the bottom.

The bar comes with it's original light (re-wired for American circuit).

An original polished chrome serving tray, two original polished chrome juicers and a set of original bakelite martini picks may be available with the cabinet; please inquire at time of purchase as quantities are very limited of these original bar accessories.

The back of the bar has two sliding glass doors. The bar is finished on all sides and can be freestanding in the room. It is on casters so it can easily be moved from room to room for bar service as needed when needed.

The Art Deco cocktail cabinet has been refinished using the most expensive finishing products on the market that are totally water and alcohol impervious! You will NEVER have to worry about water or alcohol damage EVER occurring to your beautiful cabinet. The finishing product is also extremely resilient to bumps, bruises and scratches and will provide carefree use with only a minimum of TLC. All metal hardware has been removed and hand polished to a gleaming result, including service pieces.

This is among the finest and rarest offerings of this style bar. Superior design and woods with the exceptional refinishing work that only the skilled artisans of Deco-Dence can produce!

Please inquire. SOLD
