RE: antique Globe drinks cabinet

Globe drinks cabinets are not antique....never were...unless you call 1940 antique.....and even then they are rare.
What may be antique is an old floor globe.....then some time in the nor so distant past, someone got the idea to hide a bar in the globe and put that in an office or den so the "bar" would not be so obvious.\
If you are looking for an attractive way to hide a bar....think of an antique tantalus.

Here is a link that might be useful: tantalus
