This listing is for the Ercol dining table and the four Windsor chairs as shown in the main picture, discounted as a set from the chairs and table that are listed separately; for more information on each of the items and more photos, please look at the individual listings. If you have any further questions, just ask!

The Ercol ‘Windsor’ table is nothing if not versatile, characterised by its softly tapered, solid elm wood table top that gently slopes off, there are no hard edges or angles at the sides. The table top isn’t quite an exact square but it certainly looks so. With the leaves down, it’s a compact piece that will tuck neatly away and when required it extends to a generous 124 cm in length so can comfortably accommodate six diners, eight at a push! ( one of our photos show how two chairs to each side fit. ). Ercol extended tables are not only highly practical, they are space efficient pieces of furniture; they also retain their proportion whether extended or closed.

This vintage table was originally purchased in the 60s and has been lovingly used and looked after by the same family ever since, but had been stored away for the last 6 or 7 years. We have tried to keep this completely original but have had to sand off the top coating of Ercol’s original finish as this was quite patchy. We have then re oiled the table top enhancing the beautiful elm grain as well as providing protection and nourishment. A final top coat of wax and varnish has been applied to protect. Other than a slight gap in the timber on the central part of the table, which we have tried to photograph; the table has only normal signs of usage, no deep scratches or or ring marks.

A great kitchen/dining table and because of the extension leaves an useful occasional desk space ; a great addition to any mid century lover’s home as well as looking very much at home in a cottage or country residence.

Approximate Measurements of the Table :-

Height 71 cm
Width/length when fully extended 124 cm

These iconic elm and beech dining chairs have stood the test of time and are now probably 40 years plus old, an investment antique for the future.
Their classic shape and gently tapered legs are so typical of the era and of the Ercol company itself; style and sophistication in perfect unison. These iconic Windsor chairs fit seamlessly into both traditional and contemporary homes. Steeped in history, these chairs have been loved and well used, they boast the distinctive Ercol silhouette and quality workmanship associated with this famed High Wycombe factory. A rich patina serves only to enhance their historical aesthetic.

In fabulous vintage condition this set of four have been thoroughly cleaned and degreased, lightly sanded in parts, re oiled and waxed. We like to keep them relatively unrestored, retaining their original charm and character. This set have been well used over the years and signs of this use is quite clearly shown in the photos. Evidence of repairs, chips scuffs and scratches again is obvious however they remain solid and fit for purpose.
