G Plan astro/spider tables circa 1970.
Launched in November 1970 as the ASTRO , this model is today usually known as the SPIDER , whereas the astro is the name given to the more standard circular and oval models introduced a year earlier and produced for much longer than this design . All were designed by Victor Bramwell Wilkins , but this model was over 50% more expensive than the oval ” astro ” and was presumably too expensive and taken out of production by 1974 . We’ve a number of vintage G Plan catalogues and have yet to see it illustrated in any . All this info is from the High Wycombe G Plan archive .
We usually are lucky to get 2 of these in a year , but we found 2 within a week , and have 1 other also .
This one is in top vintage condition , the other 2 need cleaning and re-polishing to get them as good as this one , which is as good as we’ve ever seen .
THIS ONE SOLD , 2 STILL AVAILABLE
Materials: Teak, Glass
