This is a really nice smaller sized formica topped chrome table, ca. 1950’s.  It has a unique plaid patterned top and bevelled wood sides.  It comes with one extension leaf and could sit 4 to 6 people.  The top is in great condition, nice and shiny and not too much wear.  The chrome is in fairly good condition. Missing a couple of rubber tips for the legs, which are harder to find for the double chrome tubed legs.  We are on the hunt for them.   The chairs were purchased separately at another sale, but they do go well with the table.  They are in fairly decent condition, and the vinyl is in good shape.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $265.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!

Yellow 1950’s Cracked Ice Formica Table and Chairs

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.
