Extending McIntosh Dining Table and Five Chairs - 1970's
A very collectible 1970's teak dining table with five chairs by Scottish furniture leaders, AH McIntosh. It is a good example of mid century modernist dining furniture in the Danish style. The round table comfortably seats four, but smoothly extends to an oval shape to fit six to eight chairs.
A slight colour difference between the extended part and the rest of the top indicates that it has not been used much in the extended shape.
It has the makers mark. The chairs are covered in the original upholstery and are were very well cared for.
Condition: Very good.
Table: 75.5 cm (high) and 114 cm in diameter, extended oval length is 158 cm.
Chairs: 47 (w) x 44 (d) x 74 cm (h).
Alexander Henry M'Intosh started his furniture business in 1869 in Kircaldy, Scotland and the firm, now called ESA McIntosh, is still making furniture. In it's heyday, after World War II, it mainly produced high quality teak furniture by local, highly trained cabinet makers in the style of the Danish modern furniture of the time. Today mid century McIntosh furniture is highly rated and sought after for the quality and slick design.
