Make It Special and Unique To You - Our Bespoke Table Service
Although you can of course purchase this fine table as-is you may like to know that it can be personalised with the addition of marquetry decoration of your own design. A family coat of arms or crest can be incorporated into the marquetry work, together with any other designs or images that you may require. For commercial use, businesses can incorporate a company logo or motif as required.
This work will take some weeks to complete and will be charged extra - please contact us for your personal bespoke dining table quotation.
A Fine Finish for a Fine Large Dining Table
In order to highlight and further emphasis the marquetry work on this dining table, as well as the natural grain of the burr walnut, this table has been French polished by hand in our own workshop.

Large dining tables such as this one obviously need a little more support and stability than lesser tables and you will certainly not be disappointed in that regard. Stability is assured by the fact that this large dining table stands on six sturdy yet elegant carved legs which are terminated with brass cap castors for ease of movement.

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.
