Here is a fine quality vintage English beech rectangular metamorphic coffee table, circa 1960, in excellent original condition. The table comprises a straight, simple Formica veneered top, in the style of burr beech mirror matched veneers, supported on a beech frame, with further veneer to the sides. Below, the table features an undershelf, finished the same as the top. The table can be configured either with the undershelf beneath the top, or the undershelf can be brought level with the top, to create a top of twice the size (please see video). To set the table between the two configurations, the knob to the undershelf is pulled out, unlocking the mechanism, allowing it to rotate level with the top, then once in position, it is locked in place again by pushing the knob back into place. The mechanism is original, fully functional and runs smoothly. The table rests on the original castors. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
This coffee table boasts a mellow brown colour. It has a fantastic original colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This metamorphic coffee table would look superb in a variety of rooms, specifically the living room. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it’s an extremely functional item. So, don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
