Reply to: 425qq-3118196020@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

A super retro 1960’s end table from Lane Furntiure’s “Acclaim” line. Solid wood construction, veneered top, and dovetail joinery. This piece is extremely well built! Has a lower shelf to hold books, magazines, whatever. Top has a bit of wear, consistent with the table’s age. These are selling for much more on eBay and Etsy (to name a few outlets.) 18″ high, 26″ length (edges.) Please include the word “walnut” in your email reply so I can filter out spam.

Mid Century Modern Paul Frankl Rattan Dining Room Set Table & 6 Chairs – $250 (Garden City)

Date: 2012-07-22, 6:34PM EDT
Reply to: 6qwmw-3156375937@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

This is a vintage rattan dining room set that is either by Paul Frankl or in the spirit of his design. It’s in very good condition with a beautiful split top and six 3 legged chairs. The top sits on two pedestals and is secured by four sliding wooden wedges. I tried to show the woodgrain the best I could so you can really appreciate how pretty it is. Top is 36″ x 60″
Table has no markings but chairs have an “inspection” tag that appears to have a crown with a “G” under it. The chairs have a newer pink colored pad that you most likely will want to replace.

    OhDearGod put me in a capsule (sz lrg) and shoot me to Michigan (before Eartha gets there! Haha!). Oh my lord, that dining set is to D-I-E for! I tell ya, we don’t see stuff like that here on the west coast for that darn cheap. I’d be buying ALL this stuff if I weren’t a bazillion miles away. Can you hear my heart cracking in a million pieces?!?
