Look 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.
You will recall, I just recently published reader Robin’s genius idea to repurpose table tops like these as kitchen islands or whatnot.
…a Vintage New (NOS) NEVER USED Porcelain Enamel Table Top GREAT BROWN & GREEN WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE TULIPS. It was found in the original shipping box from Sears and Roebuck THE BOX WAS ALL DRYED OUT SO IT WAS TOSSED. This table top measures 42×32 LEAFS ARE 12X32. IT HAS NO DAMAGE NO DINGS BREAKS OR REPAIRS. There is a sticker on the white table part that says ” Stainless Porcelain Enamel Vitreo, Vitreous Steel Products Steel Co, Cleveland, Ohio. There is another sticker that says Genuine Porcelain Enamel, The Lifetime Finish.
Note, the sticker on the front indicates the table top was made by Kuehne Khrome, which calls this a Kuehne Art Kraft Porcelain Top.
Who wants it?
