Original Vintage Ercol Windsor Model 468 Sideboard
This large, elm sideboard by Ercol is a design classic from their ever-popular Windsor range. An expertly constructed piece of furniture that epitomises the form and function aesthetic, where beautiful design meets practicality. Featuring two generous cupboards (one with double doors, one smaller) and two spacious drawers, it’s still such a versatile piece and would be a welcome addition to any modern interior, fitting easily in. It’s a beautifully crafted piece as you would expect from Ercol with dovetail joints and the signature, oval inset handles. This particular model was produced from 1962-1985, and most likely dates from sometime in the 1970s. A classic whose appeal endures generation after generation.
This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good – excellent, used condition. We have cleaned and lightly polished this sideboard with a natural beeswax polish but have otherwise left the original finish well alone because it’s in such exceptional order. All three cupboard doors align and their closures work as they should. Inside the right hand cupboard there is a removeable cutlery drawer with adjustable dividers. The main cupboard features a height adjustable shelf. Both bottom drawers slide in and out with each, and the internal woodwork is clean, tidy and in very good order. There are some very minor marks and scuffs to the exterior wood but this is in line with its age and are barely noticeable. We’ve flagged a couple of superficial scuffs on the left hand side end but as you can appreciate from our photos, these are barely visible. The sideboard sits on its original castors which move freely and with ease. It’s superbly constructed and there are no repairs. Sadly the original label is no longer affixed inside the cupboard door but this is a well-known piece that is unmistakably Ercol. We believe it dates from the 1970s.
