Vintage AH McIntosh Extending Teak Dining Table
AH McIntosh of Kirkcaldy, Fife, was a Scottish furniture maker established in 1869 with a long history for making fine quality pieces. Their reputation was quickly established because of their commitment to high quality wood and high quality craftsmanship. Hugely influenced by the emerging MCM movement and their Scandinavian contemporaries in the midcentury, they continued to champion fine quality with this new design aesthetic, making beautiful, clean-lined, flowing pieces. This 1960s McIntosh circular table demonstrates this – clean, classic design with legs that pour out from the table top, all showcasing the stunning teak. Pull the two halves apart to reveal the clever extending mechanism. This then rotates and folds out, easily converting the table to an oval to seat 6-8 people.
These original, vintage table is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good – excellent, used condition. We have lightly cleaned and polished the table using a natural beeswax polish, but have carried out no further work as the original factory finish is in such good order. The extending mechanism is hidden beneath the table. Pull the two halves apart and the mechanism rotates and folds out to add the extension section. Close the two halves to secure in place. The mechanism is in excellent working order. There are some very minor superficial marks to the table top and legs but these are barely noticeable – please browse our photos to get a good sense of its condition. The table is sturdy and solid with no wobbles or signs of repair. The maker’s label can be seen on the extension.
