    Description

    Glenn Ford's Custom Dining Room Table and Chairs. A stunning table with set of ten matching chairs handmade by painter, sculptor, craftsman, actor, and Hollywood stuntman George Montgomery. As a boy, Montgomery had developed considerable skill in crafting with wood, and as an adult pastime he began building furniture, first for himself and then for friends. His talent was such that his hobby became a full-fledged cabinet-making business that he ran for 40 years while still working in film, employing as many as 20 craftsmen at one time.
    Glenn Ford was one of his clients, and this dining set was the centerpiece of the Ford dining room for decades, and guests who have sat before it include Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, Kirk Douglas, Jimmy Stewart, Max Von Sydow, Sydney Poitier, Anthony Hopkins, Jack Lemmon, and Roger Moore. The quality of the wood is surpassed only by the craftsmanship involved, and the table and chairs are in Excellent condition, having been well-cared for. From the Glenn Ford Estate. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Peter Ford.
