1964 Dining Table designed by Michael Knott
Extremely fine quality dining table designed by Michael Knott and made by Eric Bumstead in 1964. Michael Knott is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London "the World's most influential post graduate institute of art and design" according to their own website. This is one of the best made tables from this period that we have seen. It is made from solid cuts of timber rather than veneer, the top is cleated and the sections of wood run the length of the table. The lack of frieze means lots of knee room and the pedestal support means that table legs do not get in the way of human ones. This is a very beautiful table whose elegant design conceals its impressive weight. These photos do not do it justice!

20th Century Chest Of Drawers From The Links Range Made By Harris Lebus
This is an elegant chest of drawers from the Links range made by Harris Lebus who was one of the largest furniture makers of the 1950s and claimed to have the largest furniture factory in the world. Lebus was from Germany and moved to England in the 1840s and this chest of drawers has all the build quality you would expect, with precision dovetails and mahogany drawer linings. The handles still have a little of the original gold on them which we recommend to leave alone, but repolishing the timber is included in the price if required.
