Authentic Edwardian Drinks Cabinet in Royal Tiger Oak, Ash and Gold with Mirrors

Authentic Edwardian Drinks Cabinet in Royal Tiger Oak, Ash and Gold with Mirrors

Introducing 'Edward'!

Here we have the classic, elegant and rather dapper Edward, a genuine cabinet from the Edwardian period, which has been transformed into this eye catching drinks cabinet. 

The restoration process consisted of three stages: given the piece's age, it had to be professionally cleaned and treated, in order to bring back to life this magnificent Royal Tiger Oak (how gorgeous is this wood grain!) and preserve its precious properties for the new life ahead. I have to mention that the ENTIRE piece is made of solid Oak - even the base of the drawers - this is something that ensures outstanding quality and durability, but sadly ceased to exist after the Edwardian period. The second stage was the designing and adaptation of the piece. Although I had bold ideas for Edward, my priority is always to preserve the character and integrity of the piece... The central handles were replaced for also Edwardian ones, yet larger and made of solid brass. This was done in order to supplement the newly added golden glass holders, found in the lower compartment of the piece. Three mirror panels were added to the piece, in order to give a greater sense of amplitude and complement the entertainment aspect of Ed. The mirrors edges have been professionally sanded, to ensure safety, but also a crispier look. The final stage was the addition of LED spotlights to each of the superior compartments. This was done without compromising the overall look of the piece (even on the rear part there are no visible cables); however, it is absolutely wonderful to see how much more life, vibrance and character it gives to the piece. The mirrors behind the LED lights just make this feature all the more special and I am sure it will not fail to impress you or your beloved ones in any way - I have no doubt about that whatsoever!

With regards to the other artistic features of Edward, he was painted in Ash Fusion Mineral Paint and treated with a combination of high quality oils and waxes, in order to accentuate the spectacular Royal Tiger Oak grain, visible on the drawers, headboard and interior; as well as to ensure protection and durability. Moreover, all four drawers have been lined in creased midnight black felt, as visible on the photographs. These charming drawers are perfect for keeping your bar and drinks equipment, ensuring they are preserved and protected accordingly. Lastly, solid brass screws were used on the mirror fittings, to match the beautiful handles, glass holders and door hinges. This adds a subtle, yet super effective charm to Edward and makes him just a bit dapper and more irresistible.
