Stunning Midcentury 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, in stunning original condition, 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 near-immaculate 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 shelf and the right cupboard has a removable butler’s cutlery drawer with 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 outstanding condition. It has been cleaned inside and out, and a natural beeswax polish applied but the original finish has otherwise been left alone. All cupboard doors swing with ease with hinges and closures in good order. Likewise, the lower drawer slides with ease. All the interior wood is very clean and tidy, and the cupboards feature height adjustable shelves with the original shelf pegs in place. The right-hand cupboard features a removable butler’s drawer which has removable dividers for cutlery. The external wood is also in very good order. There are some very light scuffs and marks to the wood here and there, but really it’s as if it’s not been used. The condition is quite remarkable. The Ercol ‘Made in England’ dark blue sticker is affixed inside the door. Please do browse our photos to get a good sense of its excellent condition.
