Retro Vintage Home Cocktail Bar Teak Formica Extends to 73 inches Rare 1960s
An unusual bar with an extending top which slides and opens up. Looks to date to the 1960s/70s. Has a faux marble hardboard bowed front panel and marble look Formica type Melamine top. Some Teak wood features to the interior and teak look sides in Melamine. Black and gold centre support, dark brown wood effect and sparkle gold edging trim. It could be used for a front of house reception desk in a hair or beauty salon or cafe etc. To the rear serving side is a teak base shelf and above are two half moon corner shelves. There is no plexiglass to front and I dont think there ever was. Measures 38 inches long closed, 73 approx open, 35 inches tall and 16 deep. Condition is pretty good, it does not like being moved but once situated is fine. The top hinge where the bar opens is a little loose but could be improved, there are a few knocks, one small slither of Formica to top has been touched in after a knock. Some minor bottom edge chewing to the chip board sides have been darkened off with wax. Couple of brass cap studs missing to top do not really notice. I think it originally had legs as there are 4 glue patches to the underside where I think it had wooden blocks with legs screwed in. If some short Dansette type legs were sourced and fitted it would help prevent further chewing to the base areas and would help with cleaning around the bar. So the bar could be a small project or used as is. I have not been able to find another from research, similar but not the same, especially the clever extending top. Sought after and getting hard to find and funky piece, good luck.
