Vintage Ercol Oval ‘Windsor’ Model 384 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 late 1960s – early 1970s. 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. It’s a timeless classic.
This original, vintage table is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent, used condition. The solid elm table top and beech legs have been thoroughly cleaned. The table top has had satin Osmo oil applied and then been polished to give a hard-wearing, durable finish. The legs have had a natural beeswax polish applied. There are some minor marks and scuffs from general use, as you might expect with a vintage piece. The arms that are pulled out to extend the leaves move with ease and are in good working order, as are the table hinges. The table is sturdy, solid and beautifully crafted as you would expect from Ercol. The Ercol ‘Made in England’ sticker is affixed to the table underside.
