Vintage 1950s Ercol Oval ‘Windsor’ Drop Leaf Dining Table
This handsome, original Ercol table is quite a catch and the iconic Windsor design has stood the test of time – this piece dates from the 1950s. The beautiful, honey-toned ‘blonde’ elm top sits on four long, beech splayed legs. Windsor tables are characterised by their softly tapered edges that gently slope off. It’s an expertly balanced and harmonious piece of midcentury design. The drop leaves are extended with a simple pull mechanism on the underside. With the leaves down, it’s a compact piece that will tuck neatly away. When required it extends to a generous oval (it tricks the eye as it looks round but in fact it’s oval) that can comfortably accommodate four-six diners. Ercol furniture is synonymous with good design, quality materials and craftsmanship and is built for longevity.

This vintage table is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good vintage condition. The table top has been lightly sanded, restored with oil and polished to give a durable, near-original finish that shows off the elm grain. The legs have been lightly restored too and wax polish applied. The table is sturdy and solid and the pull-out arms to extend the sides are in good order. As you would expect with a ‘working’ piece of furniture such as this that’s 70 years old, there are some minor signs of wear and tear, including some small black ink spots on the table top. Please refer to our photos for an accurate sense of overall condition. The original ‘This is an Ercol Production’ sticker is affixed to the underside, telling us this was made in the 1950s so an early Ercol piece.
