The public’s love affair with Mid Century teak dining tables shows no sign of ending and why would it, with examples such as this ? If your house or apartment simply does not have the necessary space for a large table at all times, this vintage rectangular teak dining table gives you the perfect combination of space-saving design, beauty and durability. Seating 4 or even 6, or 2 when half up, perhaps against a wall, it would also make a great desk space or workstation.
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.
Whilst we have been unable to find a label or maker’s mark, there are certainly similarities to a G Plan gate leg table, obviously a Danish inspired design, stylish and yet useful in its compactness, and is in great vintage condition with all moving parts functioning as they should.
Made from hardwood and quite heavy (teak or beech), a striking grained teak veneer top showing only minimal surface damage, the worst being some wear to the central top surface, this is shown in our photos. It has been thoroughly cleaned, degreased and re oiled to enhance and protect the fabulous teak wood and grained veneers.
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 - if you have any questions please ask!
The price quoted is for the table only - we have suitable sets of chairs listed separately. If it’s a dining set you’re after, we usually have a few other mid century sets to choose from, just check our other listings or message us for further options. Always happy to discount for multiple purchases!

Please bear in mind that all our vintage and retro items have had a life before you purchase them (sometimes quite a long one!) therefore they will show signs of wear and use, these may include knocks, dents and scratches, bumps and scuffs which are commensurate with age and previous use. We never sell items that we wouldn’t be happy to have in our own homes and provide images detailing any significant damage or unusual wear. Please carefully read the details and examine the images prior to purchase. All our items have been thoroughly cleaned and de-greased, re-oiled and polished (where necessary) and are fit for purpose. If you’re unsure, or would like some more information, please contact us, we’re always happy to help.
