Midcentury British 1960s Round Extending Teak Dining Table
This is an opportunity to acquire a fantastic, midcentury teak dining table at a great price. At first glance, it looks exactly like G Plan’s ‘Fresco’ dining table but there are elements here that are very slightly different… the more rounded table edge and the gently flattened detail on the outside legs. We don’t want to incorrectly attribute it as something it’s not but regardless, this is a very well-made, excellent quality, vintage piece. In its round mode it seats four and extended to an oval, it will comfortably seat six. There is a small area of superficial damage but this handsome table is perfect for a busy family dining space, ready to take modern life’s knocks.
This is an original piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall very good, used condition. The table has been thoroughly cleaned and a natural beeswax polish applied, but otherwise the original finish has been left well alone as its in such great order. Normally at this stage in their lives, these tables are bashed and heavily marked but this table has been cared for. There are some very minor superficial marks on the table top including a faint stress line where the edge trim meets (see our photo) and the same for the legs – very light wear and tear. The table extends by pulling the two halves apart to reveal the folded extension beneath. This folds out with a simple, smooth movement and the two halves are pushed back in to secure it in place. The mechanism is also in excellent working order and there are next to no signs of wear on the extension section. Extended, it can comfortably seat six. It’s a very well-made, British piece that’s solid and sturdy with no repairs. Sadly the red G Plan sticker is no longer attached but we believe this to be attributed to them from their Fresco range. However, because we cannot be 100% sure, this is reflected in our price.
