Description

A fantastic mid century dining table by Morris of Glasgow. This super table has 3 built-in, swing-out extension leaves that allow for 4 different table lengths to be set. The table works well from 4 people up to 10. An extremely versatile vintage dining table from one of the pre-eminent British makers of the mid century period.

In 1947 Morris became the favoured supplier of Royalty and were commissioned to design and fit a special bedroom suite for the Queen and Prince Philip as a royal wedding gift. The wood was taken from the Balmoral estate and then sent to their first home at Clarence house . Today the furniture resides in Sandringham castle. Eighteen years later Morris again performed the same role fitting Her Majesty’s namesake cruise ship.

During the second half of the twentieth century Morris Furniture Group experienced steady growth within the furniture sector. Introducing new products and ranges the Morris Furniture Group saw themselves expand into new markets with high end luxury goods. In 1955 Morris Furniture produced Wurlitzer juke boxes to USA to support the boom in music boxes.

In 1958 Morris Furniture was involved in the festival of Britain exhibiting all that was good in British furniture and in 1963 Neil Morris won many design awards for his famous Bambi chair and Clouds occasional tables. Even today collectors seek these valued and exceptional designs.

By 1967, once again, Morris Furniture found themselves in the privileged position of fitting the ocean liner QE2(Queen Elizabeth the second) for the Royal Family. In 1970 Morris won contracts to supply British Embassies with desks and cabinets continuing their great heritage in office furniture.

The length of the table and the weight of the 3 extra leaves means that there is a little ‘play’ when they table is fully extended. This probably isn’t worthy of mention as it is pretty insignificant and the table is sturdy and ready for use in your home. Please ask us for a video tour of the table if you’d like any more information.
