Gordon Russell Table and Chairs (1964)



The table was bought last year (2017) at auction in Leominister, Herefordshire by Anthony J Sargeant (previously dealing in 16th 17th Century Oak furniture – this was a complete departure but was bought for personal use – not as part of the antique business). The surface of the high quality but somewhat scuffed top was beautifully restored by Mark at Black Dog French Polishing in Ledbury (do not be put off by the name – he restores all types of finishes and to a wonderful standard). The set of 6 Gordon Russell chairs were sourced after buying the table but complement it wonderfully. It is superb quality and includes an additional leaf which is underneath the two main sections of the table top which pull apart. Ignore by the way the refection of a small circular disc – it is not on the table itself.
