Mid Century Austinsuite Teak Sideboard SOLD
A great Austinsuite vintage teak sideboard that was originally bought new 1964 and has been beautifully looked after for over 50 years.
A double door cupboard with a removable shelf inside, a drop down ‘drinks’ cupboard at the in the end, with a bank of three drawers – top drawer is red felt lined with cutlery dividers, in the middle.
The design is probably by Frank Guille who designed much of the Austinsuite range in the early 1960s . Frank Guille is best known for his stylish 1950s kitchen furniture and chairs for Kandya which are highly sought after today. His later designs for Austinsuite are less radical but show that he was a very practical talented designer who could adapt his style for a totally different market .
Austinsuite of London were a medium-large manufacturer in the 1960s. They specialised more in bedroom furniture, but did make some nice sideboards also.
In good vintage condition. The drawer runners have some wear with signs of a historical repair but this doesn’t effect the use / or look of the drawers. The hinge arm on the drinks cupboard has also been renewed / replaced. A water mark on the top of the sideboard can also be seen. Minor marks also apparent upon close inspection. Please review the photos – happy to answer any questions.
