What an interesting piece we have here! Hidden surprises abound in this vintage Chinoiserie style bar cabinet. It will make a wonderful place for you to store drinks and entertain guests.
Hand carved decorative hardwood panels decorate the entire piece. These feature calm Oriental garden scenes. The frame of the bar cabinet has been stained darker than these panels and serves to frame them perfectly. Slight curved in bracket feet complete the look at the bottom.
Vintage Chinoiserie Style Bar Cabinet Features
To really see all of the features of this piece you will need to study the pictures. Starting at the top, the lid lifts up revealing another carved panel. The middle front panel pulls down to reveal a mirrored bar surface. Next, two wood panels flip over on the top giving you full access to the bar area and providing additional “table” space. Just behind the mirrored area a removable divider hides a great area for storing tall bottles.
Below the bar area resides a large lower cabinet with drawer inside. Also, the front corners open to reveal areas for hanging stem glasses. Finally, both the sides near the back open revealing spaces packed with removable shelves. Every space in this vintage Chinoiserie style bar cabinet has been used quite inventively.
No handles were carved into this piece, and each door is opened by grasping part of the carved panel and pulling. The doors stay closed by spring loaded ball bearing latches.
Overall, this bar cabinet remains in very good condition. Both the mirrors inside have spotting and silver deterioration as shown in the pictures. The top right flip panel has an almost invisible repair on a hinge. Finally, there are a few very light scuffs here and there. Also, it does appear there may have been a drawer or some other kind of pull out in the bottom at one point, but it no longer remains. All told, this vintage Chinoiserie style bar cabinet has stood the test of time very well. It remains clean and ready to go right into your home or office today!
With the top open and panels flipped out, the width of the piece measures 61.5″.
