Mini-Bar Miniature

Haven't been collecting miniatures for some time as I haven't really seen anything that I like.... until this 70's velvet retro mini-bar with the cutest telephone came along. The telephone functions as a light switch and looks like it came from the set of a spy movie ! I also love the litte detailing on the mirror with the word mini bar. Only thing missing is the light tube beneath the canopy and I will probably check out some light shops for it if I have the time.
It is ironic that I had just done some major decluttering of the house and was determined not to buy anything at all. But there it was ! Hidden beneath a collection of dolls, vases etc but I could see the beautiful canopy peering from behind the clutter as well as glimpses of velvet maroon chairs. So much for self-resolve. Good thing about spring cleaning in 2011 is that I now have more space for things that I love.

I have the same mini-bar, only I have the light and it also has tiny glasses and bottles. I have not been able to figure out the maker of this mini-bar. Have you any info on this? Please email me at suemoore69@gmail.com
