Very pleased with this...
...my new jewellery display case. ;o) In it's former life it was a cocktail cabinet but now it will be filled with my jewellery. I'm not certain how old the cabinet is, it looks Art Deco ish but I was placing it in the 50s. If anyone knows better please let me know!
I found the cabinet in a local charity shop where it had languished since the summer and been knocked down from it's original price of £80 to £60 and then to £40 when I entered the scene. ;o) It fitted the back of our estate perfectly until we got to the slightly curved legs which made it about half an inch too wide to go right in! We ended up relieving it of two legs for the journey and reuniting them when we got home.
The cabinet stands just over 4' tall and has a lovely striped mirror backed surround on the top.
Inside there are two glass shelves and the back of the cabinet is covered with a self patterned pale fabric.
The glass sliding doors have a mirrored pattern on them, slightly worn in places but all the better for it. :o)
The only modification made to the cabinet is to add a LED battery powered light strip which is just visible below the top of the doors.
The central section is five sexy glass tubes, loving them! :o)
The cabinet will form part of a permanent display at the studio of my artist friend, Richard Savage. Many thanks to him for the opportunity to share my work in this way. :o) The hanging display above the cabinet was a temporary measure for a recent exhibition but it will be replaced with a bigger, hopefully funkier, frame shortly to complete the display area.
I love this find, can't wait to fill it with jewellery! :o) Apologies for the amateur photos but I couldn't wait to share the news!
