Grand Vintage 1930s Art Deco Satin Birchwood Cocktail Cabinet

This is quite something! An original, grand cocktail cabinet with all the bells and whistles in a wonderful pale, satin birchwood. The design is unmistakably Art Deco with plentiful curves and contours, gold filigree fixtures and fittings, sitting on a dark plinth and with matching inlaid stripes on the corners. The curved outer cupboards open to reveal fixed shelfs and plentiful storage for bottles. There is a smaller central cupboard for glasses and a further drawer above, perhaps for your olives and maraschino cherries. But the star of the show is the centred cocktail bar. Pull-down the door and a mirrored, mixing shelf extends forward. The original cocktail sticks and juicer are in place and the back is mirrored and illuminated with an integral light which has been rewired and tested so all fully compliant. If you have the space and love to socialise, this is quite the statement home bar. It’s a great deal of fun and will bring the party whichever room it goes in.

This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good, used condition. We have thoroughly cleaned the sideboard inside and out, and applied a natural beeswax polish to the external surfaces but otherwise left the original finish alone. The four cupboard doors swing with ease, have closures in good order and have clean, tidy interiors. The two large, curved side cupboards feature a fixed shelf and both having working locks and keys. All handles and fixtures are original and securely attached. Pull down the top door to reveal the mirrored bar which extends forward, providing an area for drink mixing. All hinges, closures, mechanisms and mirrors are in very good, clean order. The original cocktail sticks and juicer are in place. This top section is illuminated (the plug is at the back as shown) and it has been rewired and PAT tested. The drawer slides with ease and a little marked with glass rings inside but otherwise is in good order. The exterior surfaces of this large piece are a little worn with age and use. This is clearly visible in our photos so do browse them. It’s primarily small chips and light cracks to the original glossy varnish. Sadly there is no maker’s mark, although there is a strong probability it was made by H&L Epstein. They made very similar cocktail bars with the same mechanisms and features. It’s a large piece (heavy too!), very well-made, sturdy and substantial.
