No – it’s not a gun….

James Bond cocktail drinks globe

It’s a drop-dead gorgeous antique globe that opens to reveal a cocktail cabinet!

The first one I found sits on a table-top.  It appears at first glance to be an antique globe of the world.  However, it opens up to reveal layered shelving.

Tall bottles sit in the bottom of the globe, extending up through the full height, while round the circumference is a narrow shelf for glasses and crystal.

It’s so divinely hidden when it’s shut, and such a nifty way of storing cocktail paraphernalia.  And it’s just so James Bond!  Of course, once people saw mine, everyone wanted one, so I’ve been on the lookout for more.  And I found this one at an auction last weekend:

This one is a tiny piece of furniture in its own right, with its own stand, a shelf below, and casters.

You can store bottles below (in a beautifully designed shelf with a wood surround), as well as in the globe.

The equator of the globe has the months of the year and zodiac symbols.

Aren’t they divine?

Do you have something in your home that reminds you of a great movie?
