1960s British vintage teak sideboard by an unknown UK maker . It’s got nice clean lines with its sliding doors and neat handles . No fussy unnecessary detailing to spoil its simple and stylish look .
Whoever the maker was they were capable of good quality manufacturing . One of the first things we look for when buying pieces like this are the drawers , and how they are constructed . There are nicely made neat dovetails to the drawers which is always a very good sign of quality . The cutlery drawer is really nice and clean with it’s original lining , a sign that this one has been really well cared for by it’s original owner .
Another thing we look to is the quality of materials used . Some of the cheaper makes would cut corners on the legs and handles , but this again has been done really well . In the early 1960s there were still a few smaller local companies making unbranded pieces like this on a small scale . As the obvious names like G Plan and McIntosh get known all over the world for their vintage pieces , and prices rise items like this offer excellent value .
It’s in lovely condition with no obvious heat or water marks or very noticeable scratches . You do have to expect some signs of minor wear after some 50 years of use unless pieces are totally re-polished .
