What do you think this is?
Hi all! I reecently picked this up at an estate auction for $10. I LOOOOOOVE this piece and was so happy to get it.
Now, I believe this is a liquor cabinet/bar. It is octogonal in shape with 2 top-opening side cupboards that are perfect for tall bottles of wine & liquor(IMO). The drawers seem suited for bar implements-top drawer has an insert with boxes for possibly corkscrews, swizzle-sticks, etc.
My husband doesn't believe this is a bar but is possibly a 'knitting' cabinet-I have no idea what that is but he thinks someone would store tall needles and wool in the side cupboards.
What do you think or know it is? Additionally, if you happen to know approx. time period this is from, I'd be very grateful. I'm guessing 50's or 60's but have no real idea. It is dark wood, stands 26.5 " tall and is 26 " wide.
I will be using this as a bar.
Thanks very much!
