Vintage 1960s Ercol Windsor Model 467 Sideboard
These early Ercol sideboards have such character. It’s not hard to imagine a 1960’s modern home with a nuclear family bustling around this classic piece of retro furniture. This rare model is much sought with its neat proportion and its splayed beech legs which give it a lighter, less bulky look than later Ercol sideboards. It was designed in 1962 and produced up to 1970 so this old dame comes with heritage and history. Considering its years and use, it’s in very good order, a testament to Ercol’s fantastic craftsmanship and the hard-wearing solid wood construction. The cabinet is made from solid English elm with Ercol’s signature exposed dovetail joints and those Windsor design oval handles. Each cupboard has a full width, adjustable position and the right cupboard has a removeable butler’s cutlery drawer with adjustable dividers. Such a practical piece of design offering lots of storage, it’s as useful today as it was back in that 1960’s family home.
This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. It has been cleaned and a natural beeswax polish applied but the original finish has overwise been left alone. All cupboard doors swing with ease with hinges in good order, and the closures are in good order. Likewise, the lower drawer slides with ease. The interior wood is clean and tidy, and the cupboards feature an adjustable shelves. The right-hand cupboard features a removeable butler’s drawer which has removeable dividers for cutlery. The external wood is also in very good order. There are minor scuffs and marks to the frontage and top surface, but this is in line with its age and use, and they don’t detract from the appeal of the piece. The Ercol ‘Made in England’ dark blue sticker is affixed inside the door.
