Spectacular Modernist Bar by Jean Gouffé, circa 1935, Signed, Art Deco, France



This bar is highly decorative and epitomizes the French art deco modernist style. The large front door opens as a drop-leaf desk and offers a wide compartment for bottles and glasses. It offers multiple additional storage: 2 compartments on the right side and one on the left side (locked by a key), below a niche and a last compartment opening with a double door. The front panel is covered with parchment and the rest is entirely covered with blond burr veneer wood. The base is encompassed with nickel-plated metal. Its limited depth makes it very convenient. Signed on a metal plate (on the interior of the bottom right compartment door): "Gouffé 46-48, 50 Faubourg Saint Antoine Paris". Maison Jean Gouffé was a famous cabinet maker in the 1930s and its "Contemporary Furniture Dpt" was directed by Jean Royère (from 1934 to 1942) who made a name for himself and became a famous designer in the 1940s-1950s.
