MID-CENTURY MODERN RECORD CABINET

Gordon Bleeberman had to work fast. He dashed across the small Greenwich Village apartment, slid open the record album cabinet and pulled out Bob Dylan's "The Freewheelin'". After turning the high-fi so it faced the wall, he placed the record on the phonograph and gently dropped the needle down and adjusted the volume. As Dylan's gravelly voice began to resonate, Gordon plopped himself down next to his young wife Audrey who was awaiting him on a small sofa with a bowl of fresh popcorn. They each had in front of them a mod looking ottoman-- hers was orange and his beige. With feet raised on the ottomans, they were ready to indulge in their dirty little Wednesday night secret, watching the "Dick Van Dyke Show" on their small portable black and white television set.

The Bleeberman's had to be very careful watching the squeaky clean sitcom. If their friends found out they watched the show, or even had a TV for that matter, they'd be the laughing stock of Greenwich Village. But Audrey loved to watch the hijinks of spunky Laura Petrie and Gordon secretly admired the quippy comebacks and graceful antics of Rob. And so the two enjoyed a clandestine thirty minutes of mindless entertainment while their apartment neighbors thought the couple were intently focused on digesting Bod Dylan's gritty lyrics each Wednesday night from 9:30 to 10:00 pm.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Here's mod looking record album cabinet from the 1960's ready for your retro pad. It is 22.5" wide, 15" deep and stands 27" tall. Made primarily of lightweight 1/8" thick masonite board with a thin medium-dark faux wood veneer. It has two sliding doors with brass-tone pulls. Inside there are four dividers to keep your records standing straight. Back when this piece was originally made, it was an inexpensive, budget cabinet which emulated the popular solid wood mid-century modern Danish and Eames design movement with straight, clean lines. We found no manufacturer's marks on this piece.

CONDITION:
This piece of furniture is in good vintage condition considering its age and the lightweight, inexpensive materials used. No cracks, holes or splits but the faux wood finish has some light scratches, nicks and worn areas--the worst being an area along the front (approx. 3" long), bottom right corner where the simulated wood has scratched off. The doors slid easily and the interior is clean.
