Mid Century Globe Bar Classic 1950s

Not made to deceive……………but deceive it does………….. in classic 1950’s ‘kitch’ !!!

This Globe was made in the 1950’s probably in the UK……. copying 15th Century Italian Renaissance style Globes.

At first glance it appears to be simply that…..a replica of a 15th Century Italian Globe.

The Globe portion spins on an axis and the base and enclosure are covered in astrological symbols and signs.

The SURPRISE comes when you open it to reveal a Mini-Bar complete with Ice Bucket.

The Globe fully spins on its axis as you would expect…….but the top section is hinged and by lifting the top lever it opens in half to reveal the mini-bar !

The stand for the Globe has 4 barley twist support columns and a matching base board with turned support for the Globe.

Astrological themes throughout the piece.

Not amazingly old…..made in the 1950’s probably in the UK……. copying 15th Century Italian Renaissance style Globes.

Highly decorative piece and in great condition………small amount of wear and tear…..after all it is a 70 year old functional piece…..and it has been used and loved !!!

Classic 1950’s ‘kitch’ by adding the Bar !!!!

A very desirable and decorative piece from the Mid-Century.....a definite conversation piece !

Because it is so large......... it definitely makes a statement in any room !

Good enough to grace any Man's Den and

for HIM to show off his prized liquor  !!!
