Mid Century Lacquered Goatskin Lighted Bar by Aldo Tura
Aldo Tura, the Italian designer who worked in the Old World tradition of meticulously hand crafted objects, stands apart from all other Mid Century designers of his era. This wonderful and whimsical design may have been intended for an office or library , with it's book theme. The "pages" are beautifully grained and lacquered wood, while the "covers" are his trademark lacquered and decorated goatskin. The cabinet is supported by tapered and ebonized legs. The interior is mirrored and clear glass, with a side panel illuminating the interior, when opened. The top surface is a glass and brass tray for serving. All surfaces are original, and show great aged charm.
