Form, finish and function, this Drexel server/ bar has a winning combination of all three.  I find it hard to believe it was ever used.  It's in nearly mint condition and has all the original factory labels, and two extra handles in a Drexel envelope.  The piece has a beautiful cerused (bleached) finish and brushed brass handles and pulls.  The top slides open to a black laminate surface.  The two drawers are felt lined.  Below the drawers are three doors which open to a compartment with one adjustable shelf.  The piece is on casters and finished on all sides so it can be floated in a room.  40" w., 19" d., 32" h.  American, c. 1970's  $775.00  SOLD Condition:  Near mint.
