Table Sets

Picture of 6 Person Coracle picnic set
  • Persons : Six
  • Maker : Coracle
  • Date : C.1909
  • Dimensions : 91 cm wide

A buffet table type set, incorporating brass extendible legs that fold out from the case. The lid folds outwards on both sides to provide two tables. An additional fold up table was provided inside the case to support the drinking tumblers and to house the enamel rectangular plates in straps underneath. This table was attached to the main body by brass support struts, which could be locked into position. Complete with all the usual picnic items all housed in the traditional Coracle way, by using wicker covered wire compartments against a white background. The only poor design was the total lack of a cutlery display. This was tucked away inside a sandwich box, the only available space left. A great pity as it let the set down from a visual aspect. However a very rare set, now desirable and a valuable commodity.
