Vintage 1972 Portwood Teak Extending Dining Table with Four Dining Chairs
Portwood Furniture is a lesser known British manufacturer, based in Stockport, who made solid, every-day furniture for the modern home throughout the mid-century. Design-wise, their pieces may lack the finesse of G Plan or McKintosh, but their furniture is really well-made and practical, particularly so this dining set.. Comprised of an extending teak veneer rectangular table and four accompanying dining chairs, it’s in super, vintage condition. It dates specifically from 1972 and would be ideal for a family dining space or kitchen. The table extends to over 1.8m and with the chairs covered in their original black vinyl, it’s a practical finish for a busy household. We particularly love the unusual design detail of the table legs, and the generous width of dining chairs, perfect for long, lazy dinners.
This original, vintage dining table and chair set is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. The table has been cleaned and a natural wax polish applied. The two sides pull apart to reveal the extension section fixed beneath. This rotates and folds out, and then the two sides push back in to secure it in place. The mechanism is in excellent working order and can be used with ease. The extension section is a little darker than the two sides, a common thing as it isn’t subjected to sunlight fading as it’s hidden away. There is a small veneer repair on the join of the extension. It’s not particularly noticeable but we have shown this in a photo. The two sides are in very good order. As you might expect, there are some minor surfaces scratches and signs of use but these are minimal, and the same can be said for the legs. The four accompanying dining chairs are in very good order. They have the original black vinyl upholstery on the seats and this is in great order – clean, comfortable and with no cracks or tears. The wooden frames have some minor scuffs but like, the table, it’s minimal and in line with their age and use. The original Portwood label can be found underneath the table.
