Ercol is instantly recognisable & this table, model 492, appears to be a firm favourite of collectors & a popular choice ( when available ) - we can certainly see why, compact, extending when needed, fabulous wood grains & classic Danish style design influences at an affordable price for a table that is solid wood, not to mention bang on trend ! This vintage table was originally purchased in the 60s & has been lovingly used & looked after by the same family ever since, but had been stored away for the last 6 or 7 years. We have tried to keep this completely original but have had to sand off the top coating of Ercol’s original finish as this was quite patchy. We have then re oiled the table top enhancing the beautiful elm grain as well as providing protection & nourishment. A final top coat of wax & varnish has been applied to protect. Other than a slight gap in the timber on the central part of the table, which we have tried to photograph; the table has only normal signs of usage, no deep scratches or or ring marks. Please take time to look carefully at the photos as we feel they form an important part of our description of this vintage piece of furniture. Made between 1964-1970, this iconic design has stood the test of time. The beautiful, honey-toned ‘blonde’ elm top sits on long, beech splayed legs. With the option of folding the extra leaves to save space when not in use; it features a detailed support frame & a bolt system for supporting the table flaps. The Ercol ‘Windsor’ table is nothing if not versatile, characterised by its softly tapered, solid elm wood table top that gently slopes off, there are no hard edges or angles at the sides. The table top isn’t quite an exact square but it certainly looks so. With the leaves down, it’s a compact piece that will tuck neatly away & when required it extends to a generous 124 cm in length so can comfortably accommodate six diners, eight at a push! ( one of our photos show how two chairs to each side fit. ). Ercol extended tables are not only highly practical, they are space efficient pieces of furniture; they also retain their proportion whether extended or closed. A great kitchen/dining table & because of the extension leaves an useful occasional desk space ; a great addition to any mid century lover’s home as well as looking very much at home in a cottage or country residence. Approximate Measurements Height 71 cm Width/length when fully extended 124 cm Depth 113 cm Please note the listing is for the table only-we have photographed this with Ercol’s Windsor 400 blond kitchen chairs which are listed separately.
