Large 1960’s Dalescraft teak extending dining table seats 10 comfortably
This is the largest standard teak dining table made in Britain in the 1960’s that we have seen . It has the advantage unlike most British mid-century tables of having removable legs so it’s easy to move and store . Dalescraft were a premium maker of contemporary furniture in the 1960’s so their pieces are always nicely made . Malcolm Walker not only owned the company but was also a very accomplished designer who was highly influenced by Danish design .
As with so many things that don’t turn up very often we managed to buy 2 within a few weeks after waiting years to find one ! The first one came with 8 Dalescraft chairs and the set sold very soon after we’d cleaned it . This one arrived in fabulous vintage condition with no obvious marks or scratches and just needed a very light clean . It came with 6 chairs , but they were by Dalescraft’s main competitor A Younger .
When un-extended it seats 6 neatly , and with all 3 leaves in place it comfortably seats 10 , but possibly will take 12 at a push . Most vintage dining tables are around 250cms fully extended . This one like the last one starts out at 167cms x 98.5cms , and each leaf adds 40cms taking it to 287cms .
It’s shown with 2 different sets of G Plan Danish Range dining chairs , but we have other options available .
