A drinks cabinet with cocktail section from iconic British furniture makers Stonehill, made in the 1960s mid century. An Art Deco shaped cabinet given a retro design this wow factor piece has a central drop down door at the top which also automatically opens the lid to reveal a large cocktail preparation section. The lid has 6 red cocktail pins, with two shelves both edged with a gold bar and on the back of the drop down door is a mirrored preparation area in perfect condition. Also in this section there is a light which automatically turns on and off when the door opens and closes, which has been re wired by a qualified electrician with extra lead added for ease of placement. To each side of this central section are two small cupboards both with the original black mirrored glass base with gold stripes, and on the back of the doors a shelf with gold bar edging.Beneath these cupboards are three useful drawers, two with a dark blue baize and one with the original natural wood, all dovetailed and run smoothly. The bottom section has two large cupboards to each side, both full height so perfect for wine bottle storage or you vinyl record collection, then in the centre there is a large storage/display area. This has clear glass sliding doors with a white retro pattern etched on the centre of each, a mirror to the back and a black and gold striped glass base. This section also has a strip light fitted across the back mirror which turns on and off with the switch in the base cupboard to the right, then also plugs into the mains from the back. The cabinet then sits on a shaped plinth which surrounds all sides.
The whole piece has been professionally painted in a durable dark blue VOC and toxin free mineral paint with areas of a gold retro design, then finished with a clear wax for added durability and effect. All areas that have the natural wood finish have been nourished with a natural hemp oil.
The plain mirrors are both in perfect condition, and the black glass bases with gold stripes do has some small areas of age related wear.
