Solid hardwood construction, believed to be oak or cherry. Made in the traditional way, all hardwood construction with traditional joints. This is a quality table, that is full of age, charm and character.
We were told the table is handmade in India with pieces of mother of pearl and ebony. In reality, I think the table is a mixture of inlays in white bone, mother of pearl and black bone. The middle section is a chess board/checkers board in white bone and dark teak wood (you can see the grain of the wood) inlay.
This model of the traditional French style table was made with exceptional quality and incorporates the traditional parquetry table top. It is constructed from a cherry wood and so has a wonderful array of colours in the wood and finish.
