1960s Dalescraft teak extending dining table with removeable legs cleaned and oiled , chairs also available
The extending version of another Dalescraft dining table that we listed a few weeks ago , we’ve given it a light clean and oil as it was looking slightly dirty after some 50 years of use . The great thing about vintage Dalescraft teak is that it always cleans really well , and as it usually has an oiled finish it’s not terribly difficult . The teak that they used was excellent as was their quality of manufacture as they were a premium brand in the 1960s . Most British dining tables were made with glued and screwed legs so they can be awkward to deliver if you have a narrow doorway or hallway to navigate , but Dalescraft made most of their tables with removeable legs so this is not a problem in this case .
Malcolm Walker who owned and designed for Dalescraft was heavily influenced by Scandinavian design in the 1960s , and the clean lines and look of this table show this nicely .
In the photos we’ve teamed the table with a set of 6 Dalescraft chairs which are typically Danish in their design , but for less than you’d have to pay for similar designs by Moller or Norgaard . At time of writing we also have the same design with matching carvers available . Its a model that we like to buy so it may be possible to sell a matched set of 8 of this design . The chairs are listed separately and have also been cleaned and oiled .
Its 133cms long without leaf which adds 60cms to take it to 193cms . Width is 91cms .
