Rare Refinished Walnut & Gold Beautility Sideboard with pull out cocktail cabinet
This striking Beautility sideboard created in 1957 features walnut veneered bi-fold doors, a patented hidden cocktail cabinet that pulls out to reveal display shelves and a central compartment with a mirrored back and a drinks-making surface, as well as concealed full-depth handle-less drawers to the base.
The piece has been fully stripped back to reveal the beautiful wood grains of the various veneers that have been used - Walnut to the doors, Flame Oak to the top and sides and Sepele on the the drawers and uprights - and refinished to enhance the colours and protect in use. The interior is Teak and has been re-oiled to refresh it.
The striking curved legs, ledge and edges of the piece have been enhanced by refinishing them in gold leaf. Gold leaf detailing has also been added to the handles and cocktail cabinet interior. All of the metal leaf has been given the same highly protective top coat.
Dimensions: 83cm high x 154cm wide x 47cm deep
