Mid century string shelving with speckled formica shelves
1950s’ string shelves
These 1950s’ formica string shelves are a fantastic piece of mid century storage.
The shelves are double sided and have a creamy/oatmeal speckled pattern with a textured finish and cream plastic edging (which may have yellowed over time, see photos). They are in nice condition, a few marks here and there and a little unevenness where the formica and the edging meet in places, but nothing that detracts.
The metal uprights fasten to the wall at the top and bottom (fixings not included) and the shelves simply slot in.
The black coating of paint on the metal uprights does have some scuffs and scratches to it commensurate with age but nothing unexpected or that detracts.
Measurements: Shelves 73.7cm long, 10.9cm deep. Uprights 72.8cm tall, 13.3cm deep.
