Make It Personal - Our Bespoke Dining Table Service
This is no ordinary table but here’s a chance to make it even less ordinary.
You are looking at what is, undoubtedly, an exceptionally fine marquetry dining table just as it is now but we also offer you the opportunity to order one just like it which can be personalised with the same standard of marquetry designs to your own personal specification.
This could take the form of a family crest or perhaps your coat of arms or other treasured motif. You could incorporate the birthdays of those that are dear to you or any other imagery you may wish to include - subject to the limitations of the materials and the marquetry process. Alternatively, organisations and businesses could have a design to incorporate their business logos, motifs or maybe their product names and brands etc into the design of the hand crafted marquetry table top.
Please note that the price quoted on this listing is for the standard table as photographed here - there will be an additional charge for personalisation - please contact us to discuss your own, unique marquetry requirements and get a quotation. The table may also be available in other lengths, again, contact us to discuss the options so that you can get exactly the dining table & chairs set that you desire.
A table that can truly measure up to the job
This table is supplied with two additional leaves. These leaves can be added or removed as required in order to alter the overall length of the table, as the occasion demands. This is accomplished by means of a special winding mechanism that is easy to operate and makes reconfiguring the table quick and easy.
For stability, the substantial table top stands on four sturdy yet very elegantly carved and attractively inlaid legs which are terminated with brass castors for ease of movement around the room.
The matching dining chair set
The set of twelve matching chairs comprises ten side chairs together with a pair of matching armchairs. These comfortable and attractive chairs are also made from solid walnut with burr walnut and marquetry decoration included in order to match the table. Additionally, they feature drop in seats that can easily be removed as required in warmer weather in order to reveal the caned seats beneath to make for cooler seating.
This large, marquetry dining table & chairs set is a new item, recently manufactured at our Italian facility where third generation craftsmen can build every table to order in the exact size and finish you require.
As such, this set is in new, 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.
