A Younger Da Silva teak sideboard designed by John Herbert .
We have bought this lovely sideboard from the original owners who believe they bought it new in October 1965 . This is certainly a likely date as it’s illustrated in the A Younger 1964 catalogue , and was no longer available by 1968 . The 1964 catalogue describes the finish as being oiled teak . By 1968 Youngers like many of their competitors had started to use polyurethane varnished finishes , which are much shinier and the teak is more orange in colour than their early and mid 1960s pieces like this one .
After just over 50 years of use there are some ring marks to the top . We can sell it in original vintage condition at £450 , or cleaned and re-polished for £675 .
This model is one of John Herbert’s most popular designs , and it was made at a time when Younger’s were a premium brand so the build quality is excellent and the teak is a nice colour .
