Fabulous vintage retro coffee table by Schreiber
SOLD

A fab vintage retro coffee table, originally made by "Schreiber". There is no date on it but its styled in a 60s/70s style.

As you would expect with refurbished pieces of furniture there are a couple of areas showing wear and tear, but they just add to the vintage character.

The table measures approximately 136cm wide by 44.5cm high, by 50cm front-to-back.
