I have always loved this cabinet of my Nana's. I remember being fascinated by it as a little girl, & one day when I was left alone for a while at Nana's, I pulled on the handle at the top, & the top of the cabinet proceeded to lift up & all of Nana's vases & precious china pieces fell off the back of the cabinet & crashed onto the floor. I hid behind the sofas until Nana got home as I knew I would be in trouble! The top compartment is fully mirrored with some shelves as I think it was designed as a cocktail bar. You pull the door down & then the top of the cabinet opens right up. It's such a stunning piece of furniture, & it has so many precious memories attached. And now I get to display all of my glass & china treasures inside.
