It seemed to have spar varnish on it before.

This bad boy is now up for grabs....don't have the space or the decor to make it work any longer. We don't know the history of this piece, but the past 10 years have been well documented in this thread. The seats were never reupholstered and they need to be! Not sure how to price it, offers are being considered. Restored by Bamboo Ben in 2007. I've contacted him to see if he might know someone who can give this great bar a home!

The Romance of a Seafaring Adventure is part of the Mid-Century PolyPop experience, for sure!
Yay so glad to hear that as I have a few pieces in my bar that are headed in that direction. I want to put some fishnets on the ceiling and have a couple of projects to hang there that will link it into the sea. Mostly Tiki but with that seafaring lure to it. Won't get to my major project until I retire in a couple of years. I will take some progress pictures soon.
