This is a bespoke handmade large dining table in the style of a Victorian dining table along with a matching set of 18 bespoke marquetry chairs.
The table and chairs are crafted in burr walnut and feature an abundance of delightful marquetry. Seating eighteen people in regal comfort, it is an extraordinary piece of furniture which will add splendour to any room.
Burr walnut has been used for centuries by the fine furniture makers due to its beautiful grain. This large dining table has been further embellished with superb inlaid marquetry decoration featuring urns, ribbons, flowers, vases and birds.
The gorgeous hand cut inlaid marquetry decoration is cut from different wood veneers of various colours. To highlight the superb artistry of the marquetry, as well as the natural grain of the wood, this large dining table has been expertly French polished by hand.
This exquisite large dining table has four leaves. The leaves can be added or removed to vary the length of the table using a special double winding mechanism. This gives the table wonderful flexibility enabling it to be adjusted to suit the occasion.
As a large dining table it needs extra stability so it stands on six finely carved legs which terminate with brass cap castors.
This large marquetry dining table is supplied with matching set of eighteen chairs which complement it perfectly and comprise sixteen side chairs along with a pair of armchairs.
These chairs are made of solid walnut and also feature burr walnut and marquetry decoration which matches the table perfectly. As is the case with the table, this decoration can also be personalised at extra cost.
Another interesting feature of these chairs is that the drop in seats can be easily removed to reveal the cooler cane seats below which can be used in warmer weather.
This large dining table & chair set would also be ideal for use in a conference room, boardroom or restaurant but whatever function you may have in mind, it will make a strong impression on your visitors and guests.
As a new bespoke handmade large dining table, this item is in pristine condition. The same is true of the eighteen marquetry chairs that make up the set.
Our bespoke marquetry large dining tables are made in our Italian workshop with the greatest care and attention to detail by our third generation master craftspeople.

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.
