Vintage 1950s bar counter
An autenthic italian bar in your home
Italian bars are places where time seemingly stops. Old people playing cards and browsing newspapers, little kids spending dimes on sweets, businessmen sipping an espresso at the counter, ladies chatting at the tables... No matter if you are in Venezia, Napoli, Torino or Firenze, the atmosphere will always be the same and forever looks suspended in time.
We sourced this counter from a small, old bar in the heart of Milano, owned and run by sciura Rosina for more than six decades. Refreshed in the 1950s around an older structure, with wooden drawers still visible under the front, it has been cleaned without altering the beautiful patina it has developed over time. It clearly shows the signs of fifty years of life revolving around it, and yet is solid as a ship.
It is equipped with ten drawers below the desk and five behind it. Nine shelves plus one long shelf at the top make it ideal to store books, decoratives and all kinds of paraphernalia you might want to display. The overall measurements are 180cm width, 165 depth, 250 heigth. It is partially desmountable to allow for easier movementation. It can be picked up in Milano; please reach over to arrange shipping.
