Vintage Italian Oak and Walnut Extension Dining Table Inlaid with Brass Italy circa 1970

A vintage Italian walnut and oak Renaissance style extension dining table assembled from antique elements from Italy circa 1970. This Italian dining table is modeled after the seventeenth century originals created to be seen from all directions while the top resembles the magnificent parquet floors seen in palazzos throughout Italy. All three sections of the top have a unique pattern of timber laid in different sizes and directions chosen to take advantage of the variation in the grain of each board. The dark stripes are walnut stained to look like precious ebony desirable for its deepest black colour. The handsome legs each have a bold scale with a turned pattern known as a "cup and cover" because of their resemblance to a goblet with its lid. The horizontal stretcher is geometric in shape with a moulded and raised edge giving a distinctive profile visible from all directions. This attention to detail is apparent over the entire table and is a tactile reminder of the superb level of craftsmanship exhibited by the Italian artisans who created this table. As this table was meant to be used by different numbers of guests it has a draw leaf at each end of the table that is easily pulled open to dramatically increase the size of the table. 78"W closed x 45" deep 142"W with leaves extended x 45" deep
