This bar is highly decorative and epitomizes the French art deco modernist style. The large front door opens as a drop-leaf desk and offers a wide compartment for bottles and glasses. It offers multiple additional storage: 2 compartments on the right side and one on the left side (locked by a key), below a niche and a last compartment opening with a double door. The front panel is covered with parchment and the rest is entirely covered with blond burr veneer wood. The base is encompassed with nickel-plated metal. Its limited depth makes it very convenient.
Signed on a metal plate (on the interior of the bottom right compartment door): "Gouffé 46-48, 50 Faubourg Saint Antoine Paris".
Maison Jean Gouffé was a famous cabinet maker in the 1930s and its "Contemporary Furniture Dpt" was directed by Jean Royère (from 1934 to 1942) who made a name for himself and became a famous designer in the 1940s-1950s.
