This vintage-style floor-standing classic globe drinks cabinet on wheels features beautiful illustrations of sea monsters, mermaids and mythological figures on its map, as do all Tre Esse globe bar globe liquor cabinets.
The hidden mini bar inside the small globe itself can store up to 6 glasses and 1 or 2 small bottles in the inner bar compartment. When ajar the bar globe exposes a lovely inner dome of frescoes featuring more illustrations. The northern hemisphere of the bar globe rotates, giving you the chance to get an even better look at the illustrations.
The floor stand of the classic globe drinks cabinet has turned hardwood legs and is fitted with wheels for easy mobility. The lovely lower base shelf, which adds extra storage for more bottles and glassware and features a specially fitted bottle rack, is gorgeously illustrated with a beautiful wind rose that aesthetically harmonizes perfectly with the illustrations of the Zodiac on the bar globe’s equator ring.
The legs of the globe drinks cabinet are handcrafted from solid hardwood and stained a chestnut color. The equatorial zodiac ring, lower base shelf & bottle rack are made of MDF and hand painted a chestnut color to match the legs.
Zoffoli, the Italian manufacturer, named this bar globe “Ottante.” In English, this means octant, a measuring instrument used primarily in navigation. Ottante also translates to Octans – a faint constellation located in the deep southern sky which was named after the navigational instrument octant.
The Octant globe drinks cabinet shown here features the lovely classic color map. If you prefer a light map color, have a look at the very similar Ivory Allegro Globe Drinks Cabinet.
“Florence, the art city par excellence, is where the Tre-Esse brand comes to life. Selected waxed wood and accurate processing make each piece a timeless classic. Each object is exclusive and unrepeatable…all this, combined with the Made in Italy craftsmanship, makes our collection of globes as unique as a signature: Tre-Esse Firenze” — Zoffoli
