This is a fantastic bespoke handmade Victorian Revival marquetry dining table
The table is made from burr walnut which has a really beautiful grain and to highlight the grain it has been French polished by hand. French polish is an alcohol and shellac polish for wood, it takes a lot of patience and hard work, but it is one of the most beautiful finishes available, producing an exceptionally high gloss.
It has four leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special double winding mechanism. When completely wound in, the table is transformed into a circular table six feet in diameter. There are six elegantly carved legs for stability and they terminate in brass cup castors.
The table top has a band of exquisite floral marquetry and this regal decoration includes bouquets of beautiful flowers.
The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece
Marquetry is a highly skilled art and we have created the video to show you just how this lovely large oval dining table was made in our Italian workshops by third generation master craftsmen and women. Please take a few moments to watch this video in order to fully appreciate what a fine piece of furniture this is.
