Vintage Ercol Model 363 ‘Giraffe’ Room Divider / Shelving Unit
The much sought-after and highly prized Ercol Windsor ‘Giraffe’ Shelving Unit/Room Divider, Model 363. This iconic piece was designed by Lucian Ercolani in the 1950s and and manufactured in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire until 1970. Made in solid elm with beech legs and uprights, there are four tiers of open shelving, two of which are height-adjustable. Below is a two door cupboard unit which opens to reveal an further adjustable shelf. Beautifully crafted with trademark Ercol details including hammer shaft joints and beech spindle bars. This is a truly stylish item of heirloom, mid-century furniture.
This is an original, used piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in exceptional, vintage condition. The blue Ercol label which is still affixed inside the cupboard door firmly dates this to the 1960s. Although this model was discontinued in 1970, it has since been revived on a slightly smaller scale by Ercol as part of its ‘Originals’ range, however this is the original article. With that in mind, it’s in outstanding condition. It is solid and sturdy with no evidence of any damage or repair. The original factory finish looks stunning with only a few very minor age-related marks. The lower cupboard doors and their closures work with ease. There is a height adjustable shelf inside. Two of the shelves in the upper section can be height adjusted too. Please see the pictures for an accurate sense of the finish and condition of this fine piece.
