Very cool Philco RadioBar found, with almost all the original glassware! In great condition!

Purchased from the grandson of the original owner, in Oregon. Grandmother won the Bar in a County Fair raffle!
Looking for any info or advertisements for this piece.

    There were somethings they called cocktail cabinet also. Although most Americans continued drinking during Prohibition, it was considered more tasteful to keep it "under wraps." This Philco "Radiobar" was the perfect cabinet to house the family's radio set and the grown ups' cocktail bar. I had several of them and had the ones that had lights in them also. I see so many on line:

    Yours is very wonderful, they made so many things that came in a cabinet at the time into "cocktail cabinets". Here are 2 cocktail cabinets I had, the first had peach colored mirrors and the last one is a Russian stereo date 1959 I believe. They both were admired much like your radiobar will be !!~

    Thanks, Phil...very cool! I was fortunate to get almost all the barware as well, with only 1-2 missing pieces. The radio has been fully restored as well!
