White Fine Furniture Asian Ming Chinoiserie Style off White Lacquer Oval Dining

$2,495

About

Handsome off-white Asian style, Ming style, or Chinoiserie oval dining table with two leaves by White Fine Furniture. It is in wonderful vintage condition. There are a few nicks and dings as you would expect for its age but nothing outstanding. We call that patina. Please see photos, circa 1970s. If you are looking for a dining table that is just a little different……this is it. Made by the White Fine Furniture Company of Mebane, North Carolina, circa 1970s. It is oval or is that a racetrack shape? Or maybe we just call it a rectangle with rounded corners. Well that is if you have one or both leaves inserted. Without the leaves it is a square with rounded corners. It has a lovely off-white rather marbleized finish and the Ming style turned under foot on its tapered legs. It boasts a bowed front apron, even on the leaves, which makes it look much nicer if you like to have the leaves stay in place. There is a decorative groove around the circumference of the top about three inches in from the edge and on the legs. When looking at this table I am reminded of James Mont’s designs. It is stunning and somewhat Hollywood Regency. White fine Furniture was founded in 1881 in Mebane, North Carolina by brothers, David A. and William E. White. Their father, Stephen A. White, was the co-founder of Mebane. Unfortunately, he had soiled the family name by acquiring a great amount of debt and his sons vowed to repay their father’s creditors. Thus, was the catalyst behind their venture. It was incorporated as White-Rickel Furniture Company in 1896 but by 1899 Rickel had relinquished his interest and the name was changed to White Furniture Company. They repaid their father’s debts and more. They were always a cutting-edge company and were the first Southern furniture manufacturer to utilize electricity. In 1905 they were awarded a contract with the US government to supply furniture to military personnel working in the Panama Canal. Later supplying furniture for army officers throughout the US and the Far East. They’ve won awards and furnished the famed Grove Park Inn. My research did not uncover when exactly they began calling themselves White FINE Furniture but fine it was. Unfortunately, as with many US furniture and other manufacturers, the 1980s hit hard. They were purchased by Hickory Furniture Company and eventually closed the doors in 1993 after over 100 years of fine furniture building. We have fallen in love with this dining table and its history here at the shop. We think you will love it too. Make it yours.
