Art Deco "Secret" Bar with Mirror Topped Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A sleek round table with hidden bar cabinet was “all the rage” in the Art Deco Era. In this piece, a beautiful walnut cabinet has two compartments to hold bottles and glasses, nice shelving on the exterior for display and an etched round mirror as it’s top.The interior is in nice condition, the mirror has a bit of “foxing” which does give it character and the wood is highly polished.

Beginning with the demands of Prohibition in the United States, and also reflecting the French prejudice against “cocktails” (in favor of wine) , the concept of tucking liquor away in a piece of discreet furniture gave rise to many creative ways to conceal a “bar” as something else.
