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 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, oiled and polished to give a hard-wearing, durable finish. 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 moves with ease and are in good working order. The table is sturdy, solid and beautifully crafted as you would expect from Ercol. Unfortunately the maker’s sticker is no longer affixed to the table but the finish and condition leads us to believe this was most likely produced in the 1970s.
