Hello,

please, does the fifties vintage in the bit below imply that the table was made in the 1950s' or that it was a style popular in 1950s'?
Many thanks.

"Becalmed before the sofa was a reddish brown, kidney-shaped table of fifties-vintage and stupendous awfullness."

    I think it means that the table was made in the 1950s.

    I usually use vintage​ to refer to the time of the origin of something.

    Thanks a lot, Nat and Beryl:)
    I was also inclined to the former (the rest of the furniture seems similar in style).
