2-Piece Mahogany Dry Bar Cabinet Set
Attributed to Johnson Furniture for Directional Industries
When Earl Johnson retired and the family sold the company in 1963, it was purchased by a group of investors led by James Van Oosten. Milo Baugham and Kipp Stewart designed lines of residential furniture, which Johnson produced for Directional Industries between 1963 and 1968. After being owned by Holiday Inns, Inc. between 1968 and 1975, the company returned to the ownership of Van Oosten and company. In 1963, Johnson became the sole manufacturer of case goods and occasional furniture for Directional Industries.
A fine example of high quality craftsmanship. Most likely made by Johnson Furniture for Directional Industries. Solid mahogany doors feature carved panels in a bold X pattern. One cabinet features a lift-top with work area and concealed ice bucket; cabinet below offers one drawer and one adjustable shelf. The other cabinet features an inset slate top with one drawer and 2 adjustable shelves below. Finished in a rich dark (nearly ebony) finish over mahogany. Accented with original brushed brass hardware.
Excellent Vintage Condition with very little wear. See photos which depict some rubs and scraps along the bottom and top left corner.
Otherwise remarkably clean and nice especially when considering age.
Each Cabinet measures: 35.5"W x 18.5"D x 34.25"H
One cabinet has slate which removes for crating.
These cabinets coordinate with and can be used with our 53" slate-top credenza.
