A set of 4 Teak dining chairs that strongly shows they were made by Dalescraft, UK, designed by Malcolm David Walker. Dalescraft of Pudsey in Leeds was a small up-market maker in the late 1950’s and into the 1960’s. Malcolm Walker was their designer and managing director and was influenced by Scandinavian design. Their pieces were always extremely well made.
The seats have been re-upholstered in a lovely grey-toned thick weave Hertex fabric to match most interiors. A similar table to go with the chairs are sold separately and available here.
The wood has been restored and sealed in a clear sealant that kept the wood in a lighter tone.
The table in one photo is sold separately here

As with most Mid-Century pieces, it is a good combination of solid wood and a high-quality wood veneer. The quality, old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason, it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on the workmanship, condition and thickness of the veneer itself.

Although all effort is made to refurbish our furniture to best represent their original state, it must be noted that most of the items we source date between the 1950’s to the late 1970’s. For this reason and although restored, signs of their vintage condition & age might still be visible. We will normally point out any visible/notable concerns. Take note of all photos or view the item in-store prior to purchasing.
