Ercol elm hall / writing table and butterfly chair circa 1970
We don’t buy much Ercol but when we see a few nice pieces in one house we will try and buy it . This came with a pebble nest and pair of small armchairs from a house in Glasgow along with some 1990s dark Ercol and it was this lovely table and chair that was for us the deciding factor in whether to make an offer or not . It will date to c 1970 with it’s original green and gold Ercol sticky label in place . Both pieces are in good vintage condition with no obvious marks or knocks , but if you look closely you will see quite a lot of light scratches after some 50 years of use in an entrance hall , possibly as a telephone table . These pieces can be lightly sanded and re-waxed to remove the scratches if required .
The elm has a lovely figure to the grain and they stand on beech legs . Lovely detailing to the dovetails on the side of the table and the construction of the chair is vintage Ercol at it’s best . The modern versions of the chairs just don’t have such nice finish and wood as the originals in our view and they aren’t cheap to buy .
The table is 74cms wide , 68.5cms high and 46cms deep plus the drawer front and handle .
We can only show 6 photos on our listings , but we have more which we can send if required so just ask .
