Mid 1960s A Younger teak Fonseca 6 seat dining table by John Herbert .
This smart mid-1960s teak dining table has a fixed top so is just a 4 or 6 seat table .
John Herbert was a very accomplished British designer working for the quality maker A Younger . In the late 1950s and well into the 1960s they were a successful company catering for a more discerning customer than their larger rivals such as G Plan and McIntosh . Their pieces would have been noticeably more expensive than these companies , although as economic conditions changed in the late 1960s they had to change their range to reduce prices . However at the time this table was made they were definitely a premium brand .
The Fonseca range with it’s simple refined features is lovely and was beautifully made .
This table is in good vintage condition , but there is some light wear after over 50 years . Our in-house team can easily clean and re-oil the top , so just ask for a quote .
