Vintage Heywood Wakefield Lamp Table

Vintage Heywood Wakefield Aristocraft Lamp Table M364G


The Heywood Brothers furniture company formed in 1826 in Massachusetts and merged with the Wakefield Company in 1897. In 1921 they became Heywood-Wakefield. They first made wicker and rattan furniture. By 1949, Heywood -Wakefield designers were being asked to produce more modern furniture lines to keep up with the times and the tastes of American households.

One of those designers was W. Joseph Carr (1910-1999), who designed their Aristocraft line of furniture in 1949. The line consisted of sofa sectionals, chairs and tables designed with yellow birch bentwood arms and loose cushions. By 1954, styles and tastes where changing again and production of the Aristocraft line was ceased to make way for newer lines.

This table is called a “Lamp Table” and is model M 364G. It is classically Aristocraft with its spread tapered legs and trapezoidal opening. This piece had been enjoyed in its previous life and has since been refinished (except for the inside opening) with a product formulated to give the original Heywood-Wakefield color and opacity. Underneath is its model number and H-W mark.

It measures 25 ¾ inches by 23 ¾ inches and stands 26 ¼ high. The pass through opening measures 7 inches high.

This piece is in excellent vintage condition. It has the classic H-W color and “milkiness” you would expect. It is solid in construction.
