A Fine Italian Carved Walnut Cocktail Cabinet
A fine and beautifully constructed Italian carved walnut cocktail cabinet from the mid-20th century. The upper cocktail cabinet with carved and canted corners with carved heads to the front and corners. The brass grilled doors having floral and grape decoration enclosing the bar area which has a backlit painted stained-glass style back flanked by glass shelves held by a twisted brass rope. The doors to the cabinet are solid and heavy and the glass thick and dimpled. Below the cabinet is a most wonderful secret revolving glass bar or counter of semi-circle form, again having twisted brass rope decoration. The upper cabinet stands on a finely carved base with cabriole legs with lions paw feet. Sourced from a fine Gloucester home called The Down House in Gloucestershire, England which can be seen in the images. Would sit equally well in a modern or traditional home. Dimensions: H 65.75 in. x W 38 in. x D 20.5 in.
