Smart rarely seen McIntosh teak 1960s sideboard
We have a number of McIntosh vintage catalogues and this model isn’t illustrated in any of the ones we have . This lovely model has various features that would have meant that it was more expensive when new than the standard Dunvegan and Dunfermline models that are most commonly seen and which were both made for many years . The leg is more sculptural than the usual leg , and would have taken longer to produce and need more skill , as would the stylish circular handles . We’ve now traced this model from c 1965 and it’s called Dunoon .
NOT THIS ONE WHICH SOLD IN JUNE 2020 BUT ANOTHER WE’VE MANAGED TO SOURCE WHICH NEEDS A LIGHT CLEAN AS IT HAS A FEW MINOR MARKS AFTER SOME 55 YEARS OF USE .
It had quite a few signs of wear and use after some 50 years , so our in-house restorer has cleaned it and re-polished it . It now looks fabulous and ready to grace any home . We always recommend using a natural non silicon beeswax spray , as many sprays like Pledge + Mr Sheen will gradually remove the finish over time and leave it more vulnerable to damage . Most makers in the 1960s recommended wiping rather than the use of sprays and polishes for this reason , but over the years owners have forgotten this !
