The wonderful hand cut inlaid marquetry decoration of entwined leaves and flowers is made from wood veneers of various shades. 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.

This wonderful large dining table stands on six beautifully and very sturdy carved legs terminating with brass cap castors.

As such it is in perfect and pristine condition. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece Please take a few moments to watch our video which explains how this wonderful large dining table was made. You can also read about this below where we explain the process. We are very lucky to have third-generation master craftspeople working in our Italian workshop where this wonderful large dining table was made. It has been made with the greatest care and attention to detail. As you can imagine, making such fine large dining tables is a complex process involving lots of phases requiring a great deal of skill and craftsmanship. The first step is to work out the design for the marquetry and draw this onto paper. This is then glued onto a sheet of plywood with the veneers being pinned on the underside. We can only work with sixteen sheets of veneers and for this large dining table we used eight veneer sheets for the burr walnut and eight for the marquetry. Using a fret cutter with a very fine blade, we cut out the marquetry shapes making sure we use appropriately coloured veneers to compose the foliage and flowers. The fret cutter is now powered by electricity, but in the old days the cutting blades would have been powered by treadles. We then place the veneer pieces on a large tray and taking each piece individually, we singe it in hot sand heated in a red hot crucible. This enables us to achieve a different shade for each piece of veneer depending on how deep and how long we leave it in the sand. The veneer pieces are then hand-inserted piece-by-piece into the burr walnut. These are then taped in place and when the design is finished it is turned over and a piece of glued paper is attached to the back to hold the whole piece together. The tape on the front is then removed. In the meantime, the solid mahogany table is veneered with mahogany, once on the top side, and twice on the underside (horizontally and vertically). The burr walnut and marquetry veneer sheet is put on the mahogany table top and the whole piece of the large dining table top is put into a hot press which fixes the marquetry and burr walnut veneer to the tabletop surface. This surface is then veneered four time to prevent it from warping or bowing. Once everything is assembled, the large dining table is expertly French polished by hand resulting in a truly spectacular bespoke large dining table featuring a masterpiece of marquetry. About Burr Walnut Virtually all walnut wood displays a unique swirling figure when cut and polished, particularly when the wood is taken from where the tree meets the roots. True burr however can only be taken from a rare growth pattern in a walnut tree where tiny branches, sometimes numbering hundreds, have started to grow. Burr walnut is particularly prized by fine furniture makers because it produces some of the most wonderfully delicate and complex wood figuring to be found in any sort of wood. Because of this, we have chosen to use burr walnut in our large dining table. Marquetry The technique of using inlays to create designs has been used both in marble and wood since the early 16th century. The centre for marble working became Florence where extremely ornate stone work was undertaken using inlays of semi precious stones, jaspers and different coloured marbles. Using inlaid wood veneers of different hues was pioneered in Flanders and in particular Antwerp where fine cabinet-makers developed the techniques needed to produce marquetry. The craft then passed into France and was used extensively by the luxury furniture makers of the time particularly for items for Louis XIV’s royal palaces including Versailles. Manufacturers such as Gobelins took the art to a new height creating items of unprecedented luxury and splendour for the royal court. Early marquetry masters included Pierre Golle, a master craftsman from Flanders and his son-in-law Andre-Charles Boulle. They founded a dynasty of Parisian cabinet-makers became famous for marquetry that used brass and pewter in intricate foliage designs and who supplied the royal household. Marquetry continues to flourish using modern designs and techniques. However, the skills required to produce marquetry designs from earlier centuries are rare.We consider ourselves very lucky to have third generation skilled marquetry craftsmen and women in our Italian workshop enabling us to create this exquisite marquetry large dining table for you. Winding Mechanism for extending tables Samuel Hawkins patented a screw expander mechanism in 1861. His business was bought by Joseph Fitter in 1864, who used the screw expander as the basis for winding mechanisms for extending tables. He also used it for other things such as piano stools. French Polish French polish is a process rather than just a type of polish made from alcohol and shellac. The painstaking process of polishing and repolishing results in an exceptionally high gloss on the wood surface. The technique became prominent in the 18th century and has been used for the finest luxury furniture items ever since. French polished surfaces are soft and stain easily (e.g. with a spill of water or a hot coffee cup) but are also more easily patch repaired than other surfaces such as lacquers or veneers, because due to the softeness, the area can be blended into the surrounding finish.
