Set of 6 Danish style teak dining chairs Dalescraft designed by M.D.Walker .
We’re just about to publish a blog on these chairs , a model by A Younger compared with 2 designs by the famous Danish company of Moller .
This Dalescraft version is the rarer than the Younger model and far rarer than the Moller ones , but it is cheaper than the Danish ones which were the originals upon which they were undoubtedly based . Dalescraft under Malcolm David Walker produced some very good quality British furniture with a definite Danish influence on many occasions . Their pieces were sold at firms like Heals of London and other independent retailers , and would have been cheaper than their Danish equivalents but much more expensive than larger mid-market makers like G Plan and McIntosh . As a result their pieces are much rarer and we’ve never had this model before . For a small firm making quality pieces in the 1960s they made a surprisingly large range of contemporary designs .
In lovely vintage condition with original upholstery . Our upholsterer can quote for re-upholstery . Dalescraft did also maker a carver version of this chair with arms , but as so often these are really rare as they would have been a lot more expensive . Most people bought only 4 dining chairs in the 1960s , and a few bought 6 , sets of 8 or more were really unusual at the time .
