This beautiful vintage drop leaf table is Melbourne made (South Yarra) and although we cannot confirm the exact year of manufacture it is pre 1960’s. This table has so much character, history, and mystery behind it, the faded manufactures stamp is too far gone to identify any more than a Street somewhere in SOUTH YARRA & EUROPEAN LABOUR ONLY. This table was sourced from one the many grand manors in Melbourne where it has spent its whole life, sadly when it came to me it was far from the beautiful piece it once was discarded with many more unwanted and unloved pieces of furniture.
To bring this piece back to a form of its former glory I have stripped back the original finish revealing the beautiful natural timber sealed with Hemp Infusion Oil and framed by beautiful Liquid Carbon. The base has also been painted in L’essentiel Botanics Liquid Carbon and sealed with Flat sealer which has deepened the black and made those glorious solid Brass feet shine. The feet have been cleaned and buffed, although I have left most of the original patina.
Both leaves function perfectly. Use the table with none, one or both leaves up. Perfect in an entryway or in a dining room.
