Yellow 1950’s Cracked Ice Formica Table and Chairs

25 Nov











This wonderful little yellow cracked ice formica table was found at an estate sale and needed only a good cleaning to remove a stain on the top and spruce up the chrome legs.  Otherwise it was in fabulous condition and the mechanism to open the drop leaves worked great.  Note the nice detail of  curved legs on the table. The chairs were purchased separately from a house clear out sale and were originally upholstered in an awful green colour.  We spruced them up by recovering them with yellow marine vinyl,  new chrome tacks and black plastic feet.   We proudly displayed the set in our booth at noon on Tuesday and by 3 pm the set was sold.   I was actually a bit sad to see it go out the door as it looked so cheery in the booth and would have been a great conversation piece.   On the other hand, we love to turn around a piece so quickly.

      Could you please tell me if there is a manufactures name on this table? My grandmother had a similar one, same color, same edge even the same chairs. I’m moving into her old house and I’d like to get one.

        I don’t remember seeing any manufacturer’s name on the table. The table has been sold so I can’t check it further. Good luck in your hunt to find one!

    I Have a small formica kitchen table with chrome around it and it has brown and gold speckles on the table…can’t seem to find any information on it, like when made and by who?…was wondering if you have knowledge about this kind of table. Thank you, Scott
