About this item

Unusual for a gate-leg table in only having one side with a gate-leg . It would double up as a writing table when the flat side is put against a wall . This one isn’t labelled but we’ve found others that are with a G P Farum 1960s Danish Furniture Control sticker . This one was bought new in Leeds by its original owner in 1964 . We bought it from them , and somewhere have a copy of the original receipt !

Lovely quality and not a cheap piece when new , but stylish and practical it’s 135cms in diameter when fully in place , with nice stable gateleg mechanism . We’ve cleaned and re-polished it as it had a few marks on it after over 50 years family use . It’s now in lovely condition .

One of the photos shows it with a set of 4 McIntosh Glenmora teak carver chairs which work particularly well with it . We can sell them together with the table for £1000 .

We’ve found the receipt and it cost £47 10 shillings , at a time when a G Plan Danish Design dropleaf table was priced at £26 15 shillings , and G Plan’s Danish pieces were more expensive than their standard pieces . G Plan looked at their Danish range as being ” below the price of imported pieces ” whilst ” this furniture cannot be called cheap ” for it takes time and a great deal of skilled labour ” . Today such skilled labour is hard to find in the UK and even in Denmark where more traditional makers are still in business , but in far fewer numbers than today .
