Tulip Pedestal Dining Table, 174W (1960s)
Made by Knoll
This is an early Saarinen Pedestal Dining Table, Model 174W, originally designed in 1956 by Eero Saarinen for Knoll. This particular piece was produced circa early 1960s. The base is formed of molded solid cast-iron, powder-coated in a white (now off-white) satin finish. Its top is made of white laminate over medium density fiberboard. It is finished with a beveled edge, giving the piece its iconic side profile.
The table measures 47.5 inches in diameter, and is 28.5 inches high. This piece is in original condition and does show some signs of age. There are some scratches and discoloration to the base, and there is some paint loss to the edge (we can freshen up the edge prior to shipping if desired). Underneath the base there is some discoloration and paint loss. The white laminate top is in good condition with no chips, but does show wear to the underside and to the edge. Overall, this table is in good vintage condition with wear apparent. It is unmarked, though we have authenticated it and guarantee it as a Knoll production example. Please see photos.
