General Description: Oriental flip-top entertainment center (bar) & accent piece. Stunning - unique - hard to find here in the USA - and expensive if you find a genuine one. One-Owner - excellent condition - 100% authentic. Constructed of Rosewood with a high gloss finish. An intricate and very striking Mother of Pearl design is present on all 4 sides + the outside of the top when closed + the inside of the top when opened (on all 3 inner top sections.) Non-refrigerated & no internal lights.

Outside Dimensions: 42” tall x 18” wide x 36” long with the top closed…or 72” long when both of the hinged top pieces are opened. The front doors, when opened fully, help support the fold-out top sections. Weight = ± 300 pounds. The main structural components are all 1” thick, solid Rosewood - hence the reason for the significant weight. All corner joints are expertly mitered & tightly pinned together. Small hidden wheels on each bottom corner permit easy movement on any hard surface.

Inside Features: 13 bottle wine rack which…when removed…creates a 16” tall x 16” wide x 12” deep shelf that can be used to store tall bottles…plus 16 individual slots in the doors (8 on each one) that will hold short bottles or long stemware…plus 15 slots for short stemware behind a spinning door (lower right side)…plus 3 large open shelves (the left two measure 8” tall x 12” deep x 16” wide - the right one is 14” tall x 12” deep x 16” wide.) Finally, there are two shelves (each one measures 3 ¾” deep x 15 ½” long) on the very top of each front door for smaller items.

Pictures: All pics taken in April 2019. Time & date stamps were omitted to prevent obscuring any portion(s) of this piece. There is nothing to hide - because this piece is in excellent condition overall.

Additional Details: I bought this piece in Hong Kong in 1994 (at the retail outlet of a local, high-end Chinese furniture manufacturer)…then had it shipped to the USA. It has never moved from the spot it is sitting in now since I received it - hence the reason it is in excellent overall condition. All of the original paperwork (Purchase Invoice - Shipping & Insurance forms - Customs Declaration documents, etc.) will be included in the sale.
