I have been fortunate enough to acquire this beautiful coffee table from my Grandad. I believe it is a genuine G-Plan as it is carrying the gold embossed EG logo of E. Gomme.
I have done a little research and understand it to be a 'Long John' coffee table (model No. 8017) from the 'tola and black' range,circa 1962. I had assumed it was teak but according to the catalogue it is Tola. Any thoughts?
Does anyone know if these tables are rare? A quick google search does seem to show any. Any advise when it comes to restoring these tables would be welcomed. One edge in particular is quite damaged and I do not know how best to treat it. Is it perhaps best to leave it as it is and re-oil it all over, or should it be re-veneered?
I assume it is a veneer based on the photos below. Any advice would be greatly recommended.
