Vintage 1960s Ercol Windsor Model 467 Sideboard
These early Ercol sideboards have such character. It’s not hard to imagine a lively 1960’s modern home with a nuclear family bustling around this classic piece of retro furniture. This rare model 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 very good 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 position and the right cupboard has a removeable butler’s cutlery drawer with adjustable 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 very good – excellent, used condition. It has been cleaned and undergone some light restoration to the top surface to remove some marks, scratches and areas of sun-fading. This process involved gently sanding back the elm and building up layers of satin oil, finishing with a wax polish. This gives a durable, hardwearing finish. All cupboard doors swing with ease with hinges in good order, and the closures are in good order too. Likewise, the lower drawer slides with ease. The interior wood is clean and tidy, and both cupboards feature an adjustable shelf with the original pegs are in place. Sadly the original removeable cutlery drawer is no longer present. The external wood is also in very good order. There are very minor scuffs and marks to the fronts and legs, but this is in line with its age and use, and they don’t detract from the appeal of the piece. The Ercol ‘Made in England’ dark blue sticker is affixed inside the door, dating this item to the 1960s.
