Presented for sale here is a true small gem of mid century modern furniture. Arare, very slick, compact mid century modern credenza with absolutely AMAZING and unusual walnut front from 60s. This credenza has a stream-lined profile with slim, yet very sturdy, turned and tapered legs, accentuating the slick nature of design, It has subtle two tone contrast going on between the lighter walnut of frontal doors and slightly darker walnut on the trim / legs. There are two pivoting doors and 2 storage spaces with removable and adjustable shelves behind them. The storage is divided by a single fixed vertical wall. It is a conveniently sized, so that it can store records, great as a small buffet, or just a storage for storing any random things. It has a removable brass stemware hanger so perfect as a bar, keeping many liquor bottle and glass wares. A multi functional piece that you can use as a entry way storage as well, since it is not too large and relatively shallow. Flexible to use as combination of applications too. Just right height. The right side door is equipped with touch-to-open latch and the left hand door has magnetic stop, making it pull-less. Nice design to maximize the beauty of the front walnut. This piece has beautifully grained walnut on all 4 sides, but what REALLY separates it miles from any other mid century modern small credenza like this, is the unique hand oil rubbed walnut front finish with gorgeous, highly figured and very unusual grain pattern. The finish is fabulous, nothing like typical walnut finish you find, in such that it has some amazing translucent quality that changes colors upon different viewing angle under strong illumination. Very difficult to capture it via photo. The color is NOT Redish like some of the pic indicates, although it is a bit more orangeish than typical walnut finish from 60s. Obviously high quality piece with wood and finish quality exceeding high(er) end, oil rubbed walnut pieces from 60s, likes by Drexel Declaration and Milo Baughman stuff for Directional. It measures 36" wide x 33" high and 18.5" deep. The inner space of left hand side storage measures 16.5" wide 17.5" deep and 22" tall. The right hand side storage measures 17" wide 17.5" deep and 22" tall. This particular piece is in an excellent condition with its finish still fresh and gorgeous, mechanically very solid, both doors works well.
