A stunning and very rare Art Deco cocktail cabinet, modelled as a long case clock and standing on a three tiered stepped base. Dating to around the 1930s, the case is ebonised with chrome detail which is so typical of the era. The clock face has chrome numbers and hands on an ebonised back and opens to reveal a mirror backed interior for storing bottles etc. The long door below opens with the original key, and automatically illuminates the interior and retains the original light fitting, which has been rewired in braided cord to complement the original. This area has a full length mirrored back and several shelves with recessed circles for bottles and glasses.
There are six cocktail stick holders and a lead tray to the base to store additional bottles. This is quite simply a stunning and very rare item. 39cm wide/deep (15.5) Width and depth have been measured at the widest point which is the base of the cabinet/clock.
As its coming up for 100 years old, it does show signs of age related wear and use. There are worn areas to the ebonising, the door lock is stiff when opening and closing (maybe needs removing and a good oil or possible replacement) and there has been a historic and not very good repair the hinge on the door of the clock face. It opens and closes fine, just not aesthetically pleasing close up!If this was given to a professional for restoration/french polish, it would be stunning and im sure worth in a similar price range to the one other i just found for sale on a google search!
