This is a big table in a small package!
Does your house or apartment simply not have the necessary space for a large table at all times? If so, this vintage rectangular teak dining table gives you the perfect combination of space-saving mid century design.
There is no doubt that dining tables are the centre of attraction in a dining/living space, but also the biggest in dimension too. Therefore, a wrong choice of dining table can make or mar the beauty of the room.
The gateleg table was first introduced in England in the 16th century. The table top has a fixed section and two hinged leaves, which, when not in use, fold down below the fixed section to hang vertically. Easily stored away, the gate leg is designed to leave enough room for chairs to fit underneath the table when not in use; this design you could easily fit four and even squeeze an extra two, adding a chair or stool to each end, making this table a perfect choice for those with limited space
This rectangular extending teak and beech gateleg table unfortunately has no makers mark or labels but brass hinges and quality teak grain veneers suggest a quality manufacturer; it’s also quite heavy! The fold down extending leaves have similarities to the G Plan Fresco gateleg. Standing solidly on cigar shape legs (probably beech) lighter in colour; a striking contrast to the warmer mellow teak table top.
Having been degreased, lightly sanded and re oiled this table is solid and sturdy and in very good vintage condition. The top is teak veneer, again showing great grain detail, unfortunately a few dints and some surface scratches are visible but only what you might expect from normal wear and tear on a vintage table. There are photos of the imperfections included in this listing - please take time to look carefully at these as they form an important part of the description. The only peculiarity with the table is when lifting the extension leaves, the hinges make a noise - we have oiled and treated these but the noise is still there!
