An absolutely wonderful and scarcely seen Danish inspired sideboard designed by M.D. Walker (commonly known as David Walker) for Dalescraft Fine Furniture of Yorkshire c.1964. Dalescraft were a low volume, high-quality manufacturer in the late 50’s and throughout the 60’s who produced some wonderful Danish inspired designs with a distinctive British twist that retailed at top end department stores including Heals and Maple & Co. We’ve been lucky to source and restore several Dalescraft sideboards – this design is particularly rare and we think the most accomplished piece produced by the company. Fully restored this striking sideboard is incredibly stylish, wonderfully detailed and beautifully made with a recessed front and curved bevelled edge in solid teak. The design features three drawers (the left-hand drawer is sectioned for cutlery) fronted with solid teak with a central routed pattern with trumpet shaped handles whilst the three (lockable) cupboards open to reveal a sycamore lined interior and solid sycamore shelves. Dalescraft always used the very best Burmese teak that is richly coloured and figured the pics don’t do it justice – just the odd tiny ding a couple of marks on the top back edge but otherwise in wonderful condition.
