DANISH MID CENTURY MODERN INLAID TEAK DRY BAR
By Johannes Andersen, model SK661, circa 1950s
Item # 709LOP15 


This is a very finely crafted dry bar designed by Johannes Andersen and produced by BRDR Andersen in Denmark.  The condition is admirable, remaining throughout in perfect original condition with only minimal signs of wear.  Impeccable craftsmanship has allowed the teak veneers and solids to remain rich and tight.  An entirely freestanding unit, the drybar features a brass bar footer to allow sitting guests to prop their feet comfortably while being served.  The top flips up to reveal a white formica serving area, allowing guests to freely place drinks without fear of damaging the wood surface; this also gives the mixer more room to work, as the lid that meets the flipped top drops down to create some work space.  This reveals a large open interior with mirrored backing and two floating glass shelves over a black glass prep surface and numerous hollows for bottle storage.  Sculpted teak handles beautifully operate both upper and lower spaces, the lower space opening at a 45 degree angle to reveal a wealth of orderly storage space for bottles.  Notable for it’s originality, the dry bar retains the original glass shelves, mirrors, brass elements and formica that would generally be damaged or replaced.  This was obviously part of a well cared for collection and only used infrequently.

Practical and impeccable, this is a fine acquisition for the modern interior where a dry bar is a required entertaining element.  We also have catalogued in the shop collection a set of Johannes Andersen’s teak barstools that were intended for this bar - these may still be available by contacting us or reviewing the shop inventory.

Measurements:  45” W x 15 1/8” D at bottom; 15 3/4” D at top; 43 7/8” H; serving area is 43 3/8” W x 21 1/4” D (opened) x 16” H (inside of bar area)

Condition Report:
Excellent vintage condition; minor surface wear, overall remaining very good.  Light discolorations along edges of formica.
