I’m not sure of the name of the style of this lovely piece of furniture but suffice to say it is much copied here in Thailand. Island furniture makes it’s own version but lacks the exquisite quality of this piece.
When I moved into this house ( 1999) it was unfurnished. Went shopping for a bed & came back with this bar! The shear quality of all the joints (dovetail) and the brass inlaid hinges along with the deep sheen of the rose wood made me believe it was made for the Hong Kong market. Have no evidence to support that but it certainly wasn’t made for the tourist market.
The 4 stools are beautifully made & each has it’s own embroidered seat cover. I replaced the “bearings” on each with heavy duty ones & re-glued any joints that showed signs of becoming loose with use. So, all stools are free of any problems.
The main cabinet is very sound & all hinges etc. are fully functional. There may be one or two small water marks on the finish of the top but they certainly don’t retract from the overall beauty of this piece. Front & back are embossed by what appears a Chinese symbol of some sort. Seat cushions have the same symbol.
Bar includes: 50 apprx. Unopened miniatures. 20 apprx. Bottles of spirits, more than half unopened. 50 apprx. Glasses of various sizes. Cocktail books, mixers, tea towels etc.
