Original 1960s 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 rarer 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 on castors. 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, used sideboard that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good – excellent, vintage condition. The piece has been cleaned, inside and out, and the exterior wood has had a natural beeswax polish applied but otherwise the original finish has been left well alone as it’s in such fantastic condition. The lower drawer slide with ease and has a clean, tidy interior. The double cupboard above features an adjustable shelf and is also clean and tidy inside with just a faint couple of ring marks. In the tall side cupboard, there is a small adjustable shelf and a removeable cutlery tray with adjustable dividers in super order. All the original handles are securely attached and in very good order. There are only very light signs of wear and use, remarkable considering its years. As you would expect from Ercol is expertly crafted in British elm with a beech base and legs. It is solid and sturdy, with no signs of any historic damage or repair.
