Here we have a handmade burr walnut & marquetry dining table & chairs set which features a large table together with a set of ten matching dining chairs.
This striking handmade bespoke oval dining table is of variable length and features an array of intricate hand cut marquetry decoration comprising vases, ribbons, urns and decorative garlands.
The main timber used for the construction of the table is French burr walnut, a wood that features such a detailed and beautiful grain and which has, for centuries, been a favourite with furniture makers.
Make It special - Bespoke Marquetry Option
We offer a bespoke service to this style of table which means that it can be supplied in a variety of different lengths and with the marquetry personalised to suit your requirements at an extra cost. This would enable you to incorporate a company logo or brand motifs or perhaps a family crest or coat of arms into your marquetry dining table, making it truly personal to you.
To emphasis that grain, this table has been French polished by hand to a high gloss thereby bringing out the fine grain of the burr walnut as well as the inlaid marquetry decoration.
Maximum versatility is assured when you take into account the fact that this table can be extended or retracted as required by the addition or removal of the two expansion leaves which are supplied with it. This is easily done by using the special winding mechanism that has been incorporated into the table.
Although described as a dining table this large dining table & chairs set could be equally at home in a company boardroom or a business conference room.
This large and substantial oval dining table needs adequate support. To achieve that, the table has been mounted onto four beautifully carved yet sturdy legs, terminated with brass cap castors to facilitate ease of movement.
The Matching Regency Style Dining Chairs
This fine table is supplied with a total of ten mahogany Regency style chairs which complement the table beautifully. The set comprises a pair of armchairs along with a total of eight side chairs. These ten Regency style chairs compliment the table beautifully, they are made of solid hand carved mahogany and have upholstered drop in seats.
All items are new and in showroom condition.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
