Description

Here we have a fantastic vintage cocktail bar from Barget in London. This is the same model as owned by Del Boy in Only Fools and Horses, with different detailing on the front. This awesome bar probably dates to the 1960s, and features a really attractive curved shape with a glazed section ( think it’s very tough, heavyweight perspex type material, but not sure, could be glass), formica counter top and shelves, single drawer, bottle opener and brass ring- presumably for a small cloth/ towel to hang from. It does have its original lights still in place under the counter top, and there’s an electrical cord at the bottom- though the plug has been cut off and we’ve no idea if it still works. Shouldn’t be too big a deal for an electrician to rewire if wanted though.

This awesome piece is now in very good, solid vintage condition. It was in a bit of a state when we picked it up- filthy and with a lot of damage to the front panelled section. It has been cleaned thoroughly and the wooden panels on the front repaired and those and the inside of the bar painted satin black. The sides and front have been upholstered using a super cool cork leather with a soft brown background and tropical black palm tree type design. We thought the cork worked really well with the era, the tropical theme with it being a bar and the colours contrasted really nicely with the original swirly cream formica and cream trim.

There are some marks/ scratches to the formica in a few places, some dings to the trim around the shelves and bar area, but gosh what a stunner. Right up there as one of our favourite projects over the years- just wish we had room for it at home! :))

Measurements:

depth of bar top 34cm

Any questions, please ask. Happy to provide more photos if required. Collection from Stroud, Gloucestershire is preferred, but local delivery may also be an option. Happy to work with your own couriers- Anyvan are always good. Can also arrange a courier if you prefer. This is a very heavy piece and quite awkward to carry, so two people will definitely be required to move it.

We primarily sell sympathetically restored and occasionally eccentrically reupholstered pieces of quality vintage, retro and Mid Century furniture. Throw in a bit of kitsch, some funky homeware and our frenchie Nibbler and that’s pretty much Mad & Bad Vintage on a plate 🙂
