Sweet Mid 60's Broyhill room divider and some upcoming H/W tables

Finally have this really nice mid 60's Broyhill Premiere room divider ready to go. Had to refinish the top of the base due to someone sliding stuff around and drips, drops, wear and tear and it all worked out as planned. Nearly perfect condition! Hope to have some space soon in the store to display properly but here's a couple of pics. Really stunning as it's finished front and back with the same pattern both sides.

This actually got picked out of an antique mall that was using it for display along with the Lane console table from the last post that had a bookcase stacked on top of it. As much as the thrifts and other spots might seem to be great options, don't overlook perusing the antique malls from time to time as they don't seem to have much love for the MCM pieces that We all love. Some of our better pieces have been found in these haunts.
Still haven't received the bulbs for the Sputnik lights but they are going to be stunning when ready!
Decided to bypass the Heywood Wakefield china I had intended to start and go ahead and take care of a hopefully faster and easier project. A pair of M364G trapezoid lamp tables. These I will affectionately call twin sons from different mothers as they were picked up from definetely different backgrounds and use.

The one on the left was originally finished in champagne although it's hard to tell in it's current condition. The one on the right is sable and although in better finish condition it has some constuction issues as at least one of the legs has been ripped out of place and will require a little work to stabilize and make right. Here's a couple of top shots to see how these look before I get started on them.

The champagne one is in particularly rough shape but not as bad as some pieces I've worked on (see earlier posts). I hope to get these both to match perfectly in champagne finish and will post some "after" pics when completed and some pics of the Sputnik lights up and ready to move on to a new deserving MCM lover. If you are a fan of Heywood Wakefield in either the collecting or refinsihing vein I would encourage you to post/comment or ask questions if I can be of any assitance. Hope to hear from you and post again soon!
