Does your house or apartment simply not have the necessary space for a large table at all times? If so, this vintage rectangular dining table gives you the perfect combination of space-saving design, beauty and durability, seating 4 or 6 comfortably, or 2 when half up, perhaps against a wall; would also make a great desk space or workstation.
This large but compact drop leaf kitchen/dining table is a great example of furniture from the 20th Century produced by British Manufacturer Schreiber and still retains its label, proving authenticity. A quality, affordable, MCM antique, in great vintage condition with that trending Scandinavian style, a wipe clean surface so safe and practical for the children to use for home schooling as well as family mealtimes.
The condition of this kitchen/dining table is very good with only light surface scratches and a few small minor blemishes as to be expected from age and use. The gate leg design gives great versatility with the extra leaves providing sturdy extra table top space to entertain, dine or work and when not required can be folded away. A large metal hinge runs the full length of each leaf securely attaching it to the main body of the table. Whilst this may only be a formica top, the quality of the grain detail is superb and clearly the durability of this Schreiber table has proved it to be well made as it’s most likely to be from the 1970s.
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!
