    porcelain enamel table topaugust-1947Look at this rare and lovely prettiness: A porcelain enamel table top — New Old Stock — manufactured in August 1947 — painted with lovely brown scallops and green tulips over a creamy faux bois background. I don’t have the back story, but I do have permission to publish the photos of this marvelous ebay listing currently under way.

    porcelain enamel table topYou will recall, I just recently published reader Robin’s genius idea to repurpose table tops like these as kitchen islands or whatnot.

    porcelain-table-top-NOSDon’t think I didn’t contemplate keeping this find all to my evil grabby self, to use somehow in my office, where I am still assembling counter top areas.

    kuehne-kraftLucky for somebody else maybe, I am not in the spendy mood right now.

    1. Wow. Amazing something like this can still turn up, unused. Hope an RR blog fan snags it up!

    2. Wow! I love it, but for my own use it would make me nervous. I wouldn’t want to be the one to put the first chip in it.

      • Well, if one were to be the first to chip it, at least then it would begin to tell it’s story. Right now, it has none. :)

    3. I’m not interested in this table top, but I have a similar one in the garage that I’m not using because the base has four corner legs that made it clumsy with the booth seats I have in the snack bar. I just realized–duh!–that I can probably put the enamel top on the pedestal base I’m using. Stay tuned…

    4. just looking at this..i have a table like this except in red and black on a white with a greyish grain top with chrome legs…its prettier with the one showing here in green and browns… I had thought it was bells but now i see it as tulips..
      ill end up selling this in time when i find a top without red. I so love this site…never know what shows up….
