Interior of the top drawer. Original fittings for cutlery storage.

This extremely cool art deco sideboard/cocktail cabinet has just arrived at Canberra Antiques Centre.
It was constructed in the 1940s by Melbourne company, Worane Furniture (active 1935-1955) in Windsor. The makers decal is inside the top drawer.
Construction is of Camphor Laurel veneer over hoop pine. Good use of a noxious plant (camphor laurel) and, as you can see, the grain with the light staining looks great! $3,750 Shop 27
