1950’s Original French Tolix Maid – Side Table
1950’s Original French Tolix Maid – Side Table. Tolix is one of our all time favourite companies. In 1907 Frenchman Xavier Pauchard discovered that he could protect sheet metal from rusting by dipping it in molten zinc (galvanisation) and a few years later he set up his factory producing steel furniture. Tolix was the creator and founder of perhaps the most iconic cafe chair of all time, the Tolix model A, designed in 1934 and sadly now copied worldwide. Tolix used their metal working skill to also produce exquisitely designed but practical cafe/dining tables to partner their chairs. This listing is for the unusual Tolix ‘Maid’ which was the base for a practical washtub used to wash clothes back in the 40’s and 50’s. Hard to find these days, they are beautifully repurposed as side tables. With it’s original paint still intact and showing exceptional character.
Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
