Rarely seen early 1960s walnut and teak McIntosh extending dining table
This lovely McIntosh dining table stands out a little from most tables with it’s nicely figured walnut veneered top and pierced frieze . It appears in the 1962 McIntosh catalogue we have , but not in the later 1965 catalogue so wasn’t made for very long . The model name is Mull and it was quite a lot more than the 3 other dining tables they were offering in the 1962 catalogue . The price of a Dunvegan suite ( sideboard single leaf table and 4 chairs ) was £87 6 shillings , whereas the Mull suite was £109 10 shillings 3 pence . 20% was quite a difference in price in 1962 . It doesn’t sound much today , but it made a big difference in the early 1960s when people had a lot less disposable income . It’s why most people didn’t buy a chest of drawers when they bought a bedroom suite , and only got 4 chairs with a table .
It was in good vintage condition when we bought it , but needed a clean to revive it and to remove some minor marks. We’ve left it with an oiled finish , but if required could give it a more shiny French polished finish for an added charge .
The photos show it with a pair of extremely rare McIntosh chairs that don’t appear in any McIntosh catalogue that we’ve seen. We do have 6 of them but they need re-upholstery.
Dimensions: Its 152cms long by 81.5cms wide and the extension leaf takes it to 198cms .
