Last Friday we hit one of our usual spots because we saw these pictures on their website:
|My thought was: no big deal on the end tables, but I MUST have that articulated coffee table.|
So we get to the auction, and after having spent maybe fifty bucks on several box lots that included a bunch of Renwal plastic toys from the 40s - 50s, some old flat irons, and some special dolls and teddy bears, the tables come up.
Turns out they were going to sell them as a set. Oh well! Guess I'll be getting the end tables too. It didn't take too long before bidding got out of my comfort zone. I paid a hundred and twenty five more for them than my previously set limit. But now I have a fairly desirable coffee table. You just don't see these every day.
|Kind of looks like it's floating doesn't it?|
|Now if I just had an old scratchy wool sectional to put this in front of.|
|Or maybe a ten foot long sofa.|
|The coffee table came off the line two days before JFK was assassinated. 11/20/63|
|This is so cool. I had to have a bottom shot.|
|End table #1 - 12/22/62|
|Nearly fifty, and yet it doesn't look a day over thirty five.|
|This one isn't quite as old|
|It came off the line same time as the coffee table. 11/20/63|
|Some people like the old patina. Some like newly refinished|
|We're selling them as is and the new owner can decide their fate.|
We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.
