This set is a great example of the superb Scandinavian style with the affordability that came from British manufacturer Schreiber!
Our photos show only one of the chairs, there are four which will be cleaned, degreased and re oiled to complete the kitchen/dining set.
The Schreiber badge is on the underside edge of one of the leaves however no branding on the chairs but I’m told by the relatives it was bought as a complete kitchen set.
Warm golden teak coloured chair frames, these won’t hang around for long and are in good original vintage condition as well as being a great colour, there are some marks to the wood frame but are solid and sturdy, and only a nick to the edge of the seat pad on a couple of the chairs - this damage is shown in our photos. The seat pads themselves offer a large, comfortable base with plenty of padding left, a curved Danish style shaped seat back and the added bonus of a wipe clean surface, perfect for kids and teenagers as well as messy adults!
The gateleg table is great for compact dining spaces seating 1,2 or even 6 at a push, also useful as a desk space. The table shows a lovely teak grain detail to the top surface and stands on solid teak coloured wooden frame (probably beech), a large metal hinge runs the full length of each leaf securely attaching it to the main body of the table.
A fantastic everyday set for kitchen/dining use in the 1970s/80s and now, a must-have for the mid century connoisseur.
As with all our sets of dining chairs, we can now offer a reupholstery service at an extra cost, just let us know your requirements.
A bit about the manufacturers :-
Schreiber furniture was founded in 1957 with its headquarters in Milton Keynes, it was extremely successful brand in furniture manufacturing from the 1960s to the early 70s challenging its other competitors at the time (Lebus and G Plan). Schreiber, in its bid for domination, opened Schreiber Furniture Centres. Always Mr Schreiber to his employees, he treated everyone equally and had a strong sense of what was fair, he disliked bad manners and admired honesty; Schreiber was able to make good furniture cheaper than any other company.
Schreiber furniture can still be bought in retail shops today but more importantly, we can still purchase these original, modern day, collectible antiques!
