Bespoke Handmade 7ft Burr Walnut & Marquetry Dining Table

Bespoke Handmade 7ft Burr Walnut & Marquetry Dining Table

This is a fantastic bespoke handmade burr walnut marquetry dining table that can seat eight people in great comfort. It is made from burr walnut which  has a beautiful grain and the hand cut floral marquetry decoration compliments it beautifully.  The  exquisite hand cut inlaid floral marquetry decorations of bouquets of flowers, vases and garlands  are cut from different veneers  which are of various colours. To highlight the marquetry, as well as the natural grain of the wood, this table has been expertly  French polished by hand. It has one 60cm  leaf which  can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism, and it stands on elegantly carved and inlaid legs which terminate in brass cap castors. This stunning table will make a profound impression on your dinner guests  and will receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed. The chairs that are shown in the photographs are not included in the price but are available if required. Condition: This is a new bespoke handmade table.   The making of a marquetry masterpiece The making of a bespoke marquetry dining table involves many phases - carried out with the highest level of attention to detail - by third generation master craftsmen in our workshop in Italy. First the design of the marquetry is drawn on paper. The paper is then glued on to a sheet of plywood and the veneers are attached to the underside with pins. There can be a maximum of 16 sheets of veneer.  In this case, there are 8 for the burr walnut and 8 for the marquetry. With a fret cutter, using a very fine blade, the marquetry is cut out, using the burr walnut and various coloured veneers to compose the flowers. Today we use an electric fret cutter, although in the 18th and 19th centuries the cutters were operated by treadles. All of the cut out pieces of veneer are then placed on a large tray. They are then singed by being placed in hot sand in a red hot crucible. This singed effect gives different shades to the various veneers, depending on how deep and how long they are left in the hot sand. The various items of veneer are then inserted into the burr walnut one by one. After they are inserted, tape is placed over them to keep them in place. They are then turned over and a sheet of glued paper is placed over them all, after which the tape can be removed. The prepared solid mahogany table is then veneered with mahogany - twice on the under side, horizontally and vertically, and then once on the top side. The prepared marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then placed on top and the whole table top is placed into a hot press, which glues the sheet to the top. The backing paper can then be sanded off. The table top is then veneered 4 times to prevent the top from bowing or warping. Once the assembly is complete, the table is French polished by hand using natural products, resulting in a stunning bespoke masterpiece of marquetry.

Crafted in the style of a victorian dining table, it features the most superb marquetry and can comfortably accommodate up to twelve people making it suitable not only for dining but equally for use in a boardroom or conference/meeting room. Crafted in top quality burr walnut, which is known to be a beautifully figured timber very popular with furniture makers across the ages, this large dining table also features a plethora of intricate inlaid marquetry designs depicting swags, urns and ribbons. All of the marquetry is handmade and inset. Made from wood veneers of various shades, this large dining table has been expertly French polished by hand to emphasis out the wood grains and marquetry to best effect. The table features a special winding mechanism which is used to enable the fitting of up to three extension leaves of 60 cm (2 feet) each. These can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. This lovely large dining table has four wonderfully carved legs that also feature marquetry and that terminate in brass cap castors. A set of 12 matching chairs, as shown in the photographs, is supplied with this table. There are ten dining chairs, each measuring 105 cm high x 48 cm wide x 46 cm deep. The two armchairs each measure 105 high x 56 cm wide and 53 cm deep. The set of twelve burr walnut and inlaid chairs match the table beautifully. They are made from solid walnut with upholstered drop in seat pads which can be removed so that the cane seats below can be used in warmer weather, and for cleaning. Condition This large dining table and the set of chairs is brand new and therefore in pristine condition. The Making of a Marquetry Masterpiece Please take a few moments to view the video we have made about how this large dining table was made by our third generation craftsmen in Italy. We are able to build a similar table for you with your own specification marquetry decoration, at extra cost. Will it fit? This is a very large dining table so be careful to measure the space where you would like it to go. When fully extended using all three of the leaves, this large dining table has a height of 80 cm (2 feet, 7 inches) and a depth of 130 cm (4 feet, 3 inches) and a length of 360 cm (11 feet, 10 inches). When closed (the leaves are not being used) the height and depth are the same, but the length is reduced to 180 cm (5 feet, 11 inches). As you can see, even in its reduced format, this is still a large dining table. About Burr Walnut Burr walnut has been used by furniture makers for centuries due to its wonderful swirling figure which adds true glamour to the pieces it is used for. Most walnut wood displays the swirling figure when it is cut and polished, particularly when it is cut from where the trunk of the tree meets the roots. However, ‘true’ burr walnut comes from a rare growth pattern of a walnut tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. This formation is unusual and rare, so burr walnut usually refers to the more ordinary swirling figures found in more normal growth.

Bespoke 7ft Diameter Flame Mahogany Jupe Dining Table 21st C

Bespoke 7ft Diameter Flame Mahogany Jupe Dining Table 21st C

This is a beautiful bespoke contemporary flame mahogany Regency style 'Jupe' dining table which can seat eight people in great comfort and can accomodate ten when required.  We make this to order so we can make it to your bespoke size, finishes and specifications. The flame mahogany veneers on the top have been arranged so as to give a sunburst effect and it is finished off by the elegant crossbanding on the outside edge. The table is very solid as there is circular base with four columns which give the table its superb stability, raised on four splayed legs terminating in brass castors.   There are slides that pull out from the sides of the table and you fit the leaves on them by placing them on the slides and securing them with brass clips, which are located on the underside of the leaves.     This fascinating table illustrates all the very best elements of English cabinet-making combined with the remarkable burst of inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution. It was not until John Johnstone and Robert Jupe patented their ingenious design in March 1835 for an expanding round table,that round dining tables, which had suffered from the problem of not offering flexibility of seating, could compete with the established rectangular extending dining tables.   There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome table, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.   The matching set of  chairs shown in the photographs are available for sale if required or please see our website for other options.   Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation of condition.

Antique Regency George III Pembroke Table Gillows

Antique Regency George III Pembroke Table Gillows c.1820

This Pembroke antique dining table is unmistakable in sophistication and style dating from the Regency period and attributed to Gillows, the famous furniture makers mentioned by the likes of Jane Austen and Thackeray in their works. This antique dining table has been hand-crafted from solid mahogany which was the wood of choice for fine furniture makers due to its durability and also its beautiful grain which provides a lovely colour and patina. Above an end frieze drawer, the table has twin rounded flaps creating a rectangular top. The table top is crossbanded around the edge which provides stylish and subtle decoration. This antique dining table is raised on four fluted uprights on a quadripartite base which features ornate brass caps and castors. It was originally purchased from Messrs Christies Auctioneers in the Mere Hall auction on 23rd May 1994 as lot 56. Condition: As seen from the photos, this antique Regency dining table is in excellent condition. Origin of ‘Pembroke’ Tables The name ‘Pembroke Table’ is highly debated, but it’s believed to be named after Mary Herbert, the Countess of Pembroke (1561-1621) who was the first person to order a folding flap table design. They were first introduced as a type of table in the 18th century and remained popular throughout the 19th century due to their flexibility. They are characterised by having an oval or rectangular top with folding or drop leaves on each side. Most examples have four legs which are sometimes connected by stretchers and also have one or more drawers in the frieze. This design means they can be easily stored and moved about and opened for dining, serving tea or writing. Gillows Gillows & Co, based in Lancaster with a later shop in London, were furniture makers whose name became a byword for quality. The firm was started in about 1730 by Robert Gillow who was joined in business by his son Richard Gillow in 1754. They are noted for their use of mahogany wood, which they were able to import directly from the Americas through owning a twelfth share in the trading ship Bridget. The success of the firm was partly based on this fact. They set up a London branch in 1760 and a London shop in 1770 and went on to win commissions to furnish and decorate public buildings across the world as well as for British aristocratic houses such as Tatton Hall. Pieces from Gillows can now be seen in museums in London, Leeds, Adelaide, Melbourne and Auckland as well as in their own Gillows Museum in Lancaster.

There is no mistaking the classic and sophisticated design of this gorgeous bespoke burr walnut and marquetry dining table which can seat thirty six people in comfort.  The table is made from burr walnut which has a beautiful grain with exquisite marquetry decorations which include bouquets of flowers, musical instruments, vases, swirls and geometric designs. It has eight 3ft leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special double wind out mechanism.  When all the leaves are removed the table is transformed into a mid sized oval dining table.  The table is raised on eight elegant hand carved reeded legs which terminate in brass cap castors. The 36 chairs are not included in the price but can be purchased if required. THIS IS A BESPOKE ITEM AND CAN BE MADE TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS IF REQUIRED.   Condition: This is a new bespoke handmade table.   The making of a marquetry masterpiece The making of a bespoke marquetry dining table involves many phases - carried out with the highest level of attention to detail - by third generation master craftsmen in our workshop in Italy. First the design of the marquetry is drawn on paper. The paper is then glued on to a sheet of plywood and the veneers are attached to the underside with pins. There can be a maximum of 16 sheets of veneer.  In this case, there are 8 for the burr walnut and 8 for the marquetry. With a fret cutter, using a very fine blade, the marquetry is cut out, using the burr walnut and various coloured veneers to compose the flowers. Today we use an electric fret cutter, although in the 18th and 19th centuries the cutters were operated by treadles. All of the cut out pieces of veneer are then placed on a large tray. They are then singed by being placed in hot sand in a red hot crucible. This singed effect gives different shades to the various veneers, depending on how deep and how long they are left in the hot sand. The various items of veneer are then inserted into the burr walnut one by one. After they are inserted, tape is placed over them to keep them in place. They are then turned over and a sheet of glued paper is placed over them all, after which the tape can be removed. The prepared solid mahogany table is then veneered with mahogany - twice on the under side, horizontally and vertically, and then once on the top side. The prepared marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then placed on top and the whole table top is placed into a hot press, which glues the sheet to the top. The backing paper can then be sanded off. The table top is then veneered 4 times to prevent the top from bowing or warping. Once the assembly is complete, the table is French polished by hand using natural products, resulting in a stunning bespoke masterpiece of marquetry.
