condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Burke
We've run out of room for our beautiful MCM Burke tulip table and 4 chairs. This dining set is a replica of Eero Saarinen's famous tulip table and chairs made by Knoll beginning in the early 1960's. This dining set was designed and manufactured in the 1960's in Dallas, Texas by a company named Burke. The difference in the Burke set has to do with the "feet" of the chairs. The Knoll version of the legs is just a round base that's identical to the table, but the Burke version has four feet that spread out from the base of the chair. If you're a Star Trek fan you will recognize these chairs as the production of the original Star Trek series used Burke chairs throughout their production design. They are used on the bridge, and all throughout the USS Enterprise as well as were set pieces in other "futuristic" locations in the series.

This set is in great condition considering its age. There is very slight chipping of the paint on one or two of the chairs' feet.

We hate to part with this dining set, but we don't have room for it anymore. We really hope it goes to someone who is really into MCM furniture and will take good care of it.
