H. A. Larson Brutalist Patchwork Bar Cabinet with Slate Top

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Studio made cabinet with patchwork copper and brass clad surface. The metal pieces are patinated and enameled with applied, torch cut, and ground down textures in the finish. The nailheads that attach the various pieces add a tactile and visually pleasing accent to the design. A thick slate top is inset in the frame. The cabinet has two doors with a lock to keep your liquor out of the reach of minors. There is one fixed shelf and plenty of room for bottles, glasses, napkins, bar tools, etc. It could certainly be used in many other ways besides as a bar. It's a nice storage piece with a small footprint.

Brass tag stamped "Original H A Larson May 1976".
