1950s George Nelson & Associates Early Herman Miller 4950 Tray Side Tables
Listed for sale is a pair of vintage 1950's George Nelson tray 4950 side tables, designed by George Nelson and Associates and produced by Herman Miller. These are terrific original examples.
Both came from a prominent estate in upstate New York. One table has the rare three-screw mounting setup, which pre-dates the more typical four-screw examples. One would imagine that the owners purchased one and then another within a couple of years.
The tray tables are in very good vintage condition with some light wear and light fading to the walnut. The finish is still in quite nice condition.
The bases are generally in very good shape. See photos. The tables function nicely and lift/lower appropriately.
These tables are exceptionally rare to find, especially in nice condition like these.
The price listed includes both tables. I also have a third table available for sale in a separate listing.
