Sleek early 1960’s Everest teak Monza sideboard from Heals
This lovely model was first introduced in 1961 following an earlier rosewood model with identical internal fittings that first came out in 1960 . Our current research has suggested a specific designer for this lovely minimalist piece . This one came with a family history of having been purchased from Heals in 1964 .
It’s 221cms long , 75cms high and 45cms deep . It’s been cleaned and oiled and it’s now looking really nice with no obvious marks or damage . We found a label inside noting that it had been oiled regularly throughout it’s first few years . We recommend using a Beeswax spray occasionally to keep a good shine rather than a regular oiling which shouldn’t be necessary .
Everest was probably best known in the 1960’s as a maker of contemporary sofas and chairs , but they also produced a small amount of dining furniture including some very stylish sideboards . They were not made in large numbers , and this model doesn’t come up for sale very often . We can’t think of any other maker who not only fitted their sideboards with removable trays and drawers but also with a beautiful wine/bottle holder . It’s the first time we’ve had this model before .
All the drawers etc have practical stylish laminate bases , possibly in Wareite which was used by McIntosh for pull out trays .
