American of Martinsville Mid-Century Bar

Doing research on Broyhill furniture was pretty interesting, so I'm going to track down information on the other mid-century furniture pieces in our house. Up next, the bar we found on craigslist a few years ago.
It's an American of Martinsville bar.
In the top drawer it has a mechanized tray, with glass holders, that comes out when you open the door. Behind the tray is a mirror and a light to make your barware look swank.
Under that on the left is a cabinet with a drawer for silverware, swizzle sticks, etc. And on the right is a big cabinet to hold the booze.
I'll try to find out more about American of Martinsville and what line the bar might be from.

  2. I did a follow up post (http://ouraustinhome.blogspot.com/2010/09/one-mid-century-bar-many-uses.html), but sadly, no, I've never been able to find which exact American of Martinsville line this bar is part of. My best guess it that it's part of a few lines. Thanks for reading.

  3. Look here (http://danishmod.com/storage4.html) It is part of the dania line.

    I was interested in knowing because I have the complete dining set with table and chairs under this line.

    Hope that helps.

  6. I have two pieces of American Of Martinsville furniture but it is identified by gold plates that are mounted in the drawers rather than carved in the wood, what does that mean?
