This is a wonderful bespoke handmade Victorian style large dining suite comprising a 5 meter dining table with 16 chairs.
The table, crafted in burr walnut features exceptional quality marquetry with pewter, lapis lazuli and agate.
Seating sixteen people in royal comfort, it is an amazing piece of luxury furniture which will add splendour to any room. Also appropriate for a conference room or any commercial space such as a feature piece in a hotel dining room or lobby, it is sure to be a talking point.
Due to its beautifully figured grain, burr walnut has been used for centuries by fine furniture makers. This large dining table has been further embellished with superb inlaid floral marquetry with burr walnut inlaid in pewter and various coloured veneers comprising cherry, pear, amboyna, burr walnut, magnolia, and tulipwood with inserts of lapis lazuli.
To highlight the natural grain of the wood and the excellent artistry of the marquetry, we have French polished this large dining table by hand.
The skirt of the table is decorated with ormolu mounts inset with agate.
This wonderful large dining table is raised on two burr walnut ebonised and inlaid pedestals that are raised on hand carved solid mahogany lion's paw feet.
The matching set of 16 chairs comprises fourteen side chairs and a pair of armchairs. The chairs are made of solid walnut, have been beautifully French polished and upholstered, and the exquiste marquetry decoration is hand cut to match the table. The drop in seats can be removed in hot weather so that the cane seats below can be utilised.
