1960s Vintage White and Newton of Portsmouth teak dining table and chairs in lovely vintage condition . This set came to us from the daughter of the original owner , who had cared for it for well over 40 years . Every so often we find pieces that have been obviously loved all their life , with no water or heat marks , no scratches or obvious signs of wear .
The only obvious issue is that the extension leaf has rarely been used , so it’s darker than the rest of the table which has had a certain amount of fading , as you’ll see in the photos . White + Newton along with McIntosh and Nathan all sold circular tables and chair sets that were obviously influenced by the Hans Olsen Frem Rojle Roundette table and chairs . This is the White + Newton version . The chairs don’t sit in to the table quite as well , and there isn’t the same attention to detail , but as we’re asking less than a fifth of what you’d pay for the Hans Olsen design you can’t really complain . Like the bulk of British dining tables the legs are glued and screwed , so can’t be removed if you have a narrow doorway to contend with .
