A personal Steampunk bar transformed from a light bulb voltage tester


There is a certain something that designs from the past continue to radiate even today. Some call it charm, some call it old-world beauty. We’ve decided not to tag it with a name and instead continue staring at this marvel of the furniture world we’ve spotted. In essence a former light bulb-testing machine, the contraption has been repurposed and is now turned into a bar! The German machine hails from the 1920s and is nearly a century old. Weighing in at 25lbs, this bar has sufficient space to store your glassware and spirits. The bar also sports shelves for wine bottles and an apparatus to hang your glassware.
