Late 1960s White and Newton Westbourne teak sideboard cleaned and oiled

Late 1960s White and Newton Westbourne teak sideboard cleaned and oiled

This is one of our favorite models  as it’s so sleek and stylish . Designed by Philip Hussey in about 1967 and made by the quality British maker White and Newton of Portsmouth in the late 1960s and into the early 1970s . Its 217cms long , just under 70cms in height and 44cms deep .

White and Newton used a very strong polyurethane finish at the time and over the years this degrades bit by bit and it can then mark more easily . These finishes are great but were not designed for spray polishing and the original instructions say this , but over time people forget . We much prefer a natural  oiled finish as we was used on most early 1960s teak , so this is what we give pieces that we’ve cleaned . We then advise a natural beeswax spray every so often . It’s now in lovely condition after being stripped and cleaned , with no obvious marks or scratches . If you look at any piece of vintage furniture extremely closely you will always see very slight signs of use , but there is nothing that we can show in a photograph .
