Hard to find vintage McGuire dining table. Designed by Leonard Linden for John and Elinor McGuire in the 1950’s, we estimate the birth of this table (from the patina) between 1950’s and 1960’s. We love the combination of patinated rattan, brass cap hardware and tinted glass. The brass caps have small stems that slip into the shafts of the six vertical rattan pillars. These pillars have a dark, smokey amber patina that is difficult to appreciate until you see it in person. Strips of lighter toned reed wrap the the vertical and horizontal intersections. Blue tinted six-sided (hexagon) glass perfectly compliments the base to create a stunning architectural composition.
Don’t let the facade fool you. This table base actually has a metal skeletal structure that is decoratively wrapped in vertical rattan stalks. This look is very unique and when you start to meditate on it, the versatility of this piece is truly amazing. Easily integrate into nearly any decor. Modern, gothic, primitive, Scandinavian, coastal, Hollywood Regency and industrial are only a few.
This table is in excellent condition. The base has been detailed top to bottom and has only minor imperfections. Glass top has no chip or cracks, but does however have light surface scratches. Matching directors chairs are also available and sold separately.
