Art Deco Philco Radiobar Cocktail Bar Cabinet
SOLD!Although most Americans continued drinking during Prohibition, it was considered more tasteful to keep it “under wraps.” This Philco Radiobar was the perfect cabinet to house the family’s radio set and the grown ups’ cocktail bar. Various cabinet designs were offered, but the streamlined Art Deco version is by far the most luxurious. Combinations of exotic woods and a chrome interior create a striking design. Once opened, the top exposes the bar area, which has been completely re-plated in mirror chrome. The 6 Decanters and Cocktail shaker are original. The glasses are of the period and complementary to the cabinet. The bar area has built in lighting activated from the reverse side. The radio has been rebuilt as well, and has a deep, rich tone, as only the old tube sets can offer. The wood cabinet has been beautifully refinished, as well as new replacement radio grille cloth. The cabinet displays strongly, and should be a welcome addition to any interior.
