Antique Art Deco Curved Glass Department Store BEAUTY BAR Cosmetic Counter 9.5 Feet

This is an absolutely beautiful Antique Art Deco display counter Circa 1920's. We are told that it was originally a department store display for Mavis Perfume. We purchased it about 20 years ago from a local estate and the previous owners had obtained it in the 1950's from a drug store in Seaside, Oregon that was closing at that time. It has served us well in our antique shop ever since! It is a large impressive piece that measures approximately 9 1/2 feet long, 76" tall and 21" deep. There is a curved glass display on each end with a 40" counter opening in the center. The top has the words "BEAUTY BAR" cut out in the wood in the front with lighting behind (see photo). It is all glass and wood. It has its original glass shelves inside. There are 4 curved glass shelves on each of the ends and there are two glass shelves below the center counter section. The center shelves are original as well and they are cut with a curved wavy edge pattern. On each end is a vertical glass enclosed light that extends from the top to the bottom (see photos). There are sliding glass doors for entering on the back and on each side of the upper end portions above the counter. There is lighting on the top and sides that illuminates it both inside and on the outside ends. The lighting is not currently functioning because the lighting ballast has gone out and new ballast is not available. However we are told by our local electrician that a professional could easily remedy this by fitting it with a more modern ballast. Until recently it was well lit and it is a beautiful site to behold when fully lighted! There is a beauty counter like this one pictured in the book "COLLECTOR'S STYLE" by Better Homes And Gardens on page 37. Another Beauty Bar like this sold a few years ago for $15,000.00 in the San Francisco area. This is a large piece that will have to be moved by professionals so we are offering it for local pick-up only. The buyer will have to arrange their own shipping arrangements.


Unless other arrangements have been agreed to prior to purchase the buyer should make payment within three days following purchase.
