1930'S ART DECO COCKTAIL BAR

Today it's my amazing (if I do say so myself) Art Deco Bar!
I just got this Saturday and couldn't be happier.  Original metal tooth picks for your martinis!
I have wanted one of these for years now and just never found one I liked and could afford.
It has all the features I love.  Great Deco shapes, and amazing wood.
The top opens up (both bottom and top) open together with one move.  It's all back lit too.
Here's what it looks like when it's in a darker room.
Lightly loaded with hooch.  I'm about out of everything, so I think I need to re-supply.
Both sides are open for storage.   I mean look at that wood.  It's all maple, with amazing Birdseye maple inside.  Plus, 3 drawers in the middle... I have lot's of room for about everything.
Can you see the birds eye?  Tiger striped on the top too.  
I has a little railing around it... Like it's a miniature of some 1930's club or something.   I've always wanted a bar like this and now I've finally got one.  It's very "Nick & Nora"   
If you know anything about who made it or when, please drop me a line.  I'd also like to see what the original glass looked like on the shelf if you have one...  This bar is Vintage Gear for Guys!


If you like art deco.. this site had me do a write up on my bar and they have lots of awesome art deco stuff there too!   www.decolish.com

  5. We have on very similar with the same hardware. Ours has a different light and design on the glass top. We found this in the state of Washington when we lived there. We love it. What a great piece of furniture.

  6. Does anyone know what the types of wood that are used in the construction? It looks like maple on the inside, but what is the wood on the outside?
