This stunning retro server/bar/sideboard is a rarely seen piece from the upscale Broyhill Premier Emphasis line. Built by American craftsman during the 1960’s, this Mid Century Modern Broyhill Premiere Emphasis Server is made from walnut veneer with a gorgeous burnished finish to the wood.

The walnut case contains two drawers over four cabinet doors. Note the left drawer, divided and lined with rich blue felt, while the right drawer holds a lined flatware tray. Unlike many Mid-Century pieces, the finished back of the server allows it to be free standing. The Broyhill Premier tag appears in the right drawer.
