MID-CENTURY MODERN SPINNING COFFEE TABLE
(Before you purchase this item, please be sure to scroll down and read the full description/condition report below the story)
Gordon Bleeberman had to work fast. He dashed across the small Greenwich Village apartment, slid open the record cabinet and pulled out Bob Dylan's "The Freewheelin'". After turning the high-fi so it faced the wall, he placed the record on the phonograph and gently dropped the needle down and adjusted the volume. As Dylan's gravelly voice began to resonate, Gordon plopped himself down next to his young wife Audrey who was awaiting him on a small sofa. In front of the sofa was a square coffee table with two steaming TV dinners and a couple bottles of Coke. The young couple was now ready to indulge in their dirty little Wednesday night secret--watching the "Dick Van Dyke Show" on their small portable black and white television set.
The Bleeberman's had to be very careful watching the squeaky clean sitcom. If their angst-filled beatnik friends found out they watched the show, or even had a TV for that matter, they'd be the laughing stock of Greenwich Village. But Audrey loved to watch the hijinks of spunky Laura Petrie and Gordon secretly admired the quippy comebacks and graceful antics of Rob. And so the two enjoyed a clandestine thirty minutes of mindless entertainment while their apartment neighbors thought the couple were intently focused on digesting Bod Dylan's gritty lyrics each Wednesday night from 9:30 to 10:00 pm.
Here's a unique find--a handmade mid century modern style coffee table with rotating, lazy susan top. In our research, we found a 1950s furniture building plans book with this very table design in it so we are dating it to the 1950s. The table measures 28" X 24" and stands 16" off the floor with four stiletto style solid wood legs. The table is constructed out of 1" thick plywood with light, golden faux maple wood grain laminate top and sides. The sides are 1" high. As mentioned, the tabletop spins around 360 degrees making it great for entertaining, puzzles, or for use as TV stand. The legs can either be positioned at an angle (as shown in the photos) or you can make them straight which will make the table stand 17" off the floor.
This table is in very good used vintage condition and is straight/sturdy. The laminate and legs have some light surface scratches but no cracks, stains or other major issues. The lazy susan function spins smoothly with enough tension so it remains in position.

COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNTS-

We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.
Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.
