T.H. ROBSJOHN-GIBBINGS FOR JOHN WIDDICOMB DINING TABLE AND SIX CHAIRS
Walnut in sherry finish, models 4301 (table) and 4204 (chairs); labeled and dated circa 1957
Item # 802PPZ07S 


Designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings (United Kingdom, 1905-76) for production by John Widdicomb in the 1950s, this particular suite was manufactured in February of 1957 per the markings to the underside and it retains the original Widdicomb label.  It is the perfect size to fit the six chairs included with the suite and while the table does open to accept additional leaves, these have long since been lost and are no longer available for the set.  One of the images attached shows the chair set in an original ad, though the table featured is the double pedestal rather than the four klismo legged table.  There is a distinct Athenian influence in the form with an original take on the Klismo leg that is so striking.  Each leg splays deeply with an incredible amount of drama.  All pieces are of very fine craftsmanship throughout.  It is a rather rare suite designed by one of the most important tastemakers of his time.

Measurements:  67 7/8 W x 40 D x 29 H [table, closed]; 22 1/4 W x 24 D x 33 1/2 H [arm chairs]; 21 3/4 W x 24 D x 33 1/2 H [side chairs]; all chairs 17 H to seat

Condition Report:
Original naugahyde upholstery with some marks (mostly where the chairs would touch the edge of the table), remaining nicely stuffed and quite comfortable.  The table would be much more powerful if you choose to have it fully restored.  Finish with some wear - it has been polished and has a beautiful glow; specks of finish loss, old finish loss/recoloring to one corner, one portion of edge with colored repair; table opens to receive two leaves, these no longer available.  Legs of table with discolorations, particularly around the feet.
