'The Massey' Tractor Counter Top Table
A real fun piece. A Massy Ferguson MF35 Tractor Bonnet with a Reclaimed Teak Wood Counter Top. One of our favourites, and great at pulling the lads into the shop.
Could be used as a funky breakfast bar, or small kitchen Island bar. Would also work well in a covered Patio/BBQ area. Working Lights.
We think this piece could also work well for Bar or Restaurant furniture.
Massy Ferguson 35's are the classic look - bit of a 50's vibe -makes me think of Americana Apple Pie.The original inventor, Harry Ferguson was born near Hillsborough Co Down. And he lived a fascinating life. As well as the famous tractor, he was the first person in Ireland to build and fly his own plane, and he developed the first 4 wheel Formula One Car - busy guy!
His original 3 point hydraulic hitch system really revolutionised farming - impacting our lives to this day! Originally he did a hand shake deal with Henry Ford to produce his new innovative design as the Ford - Ferguson which eventually went sour and ended up in court with Ferguson being awarded millions for patent infraction by Ford. But the court battle impacted on his health. He died of an overdose in 1960. He was commemorated in Ireland in 1981 with a National Stamp. He is also currently on the £20 pound sterling note issued by Danske Bank in Northern Ireland. A full-scale replica of the Ferguson monoplane and an early Ferguson tractor and plough can be seen at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum.
