circa: 2000 width: 87 height: 30 length: 42 This lovely English parquetry dining table was recently crafted and imported to our antique furniture store here in Atlanta, GA, USA. The wood used in this parquetry dining table is a fine, lustrous cherry with a distinct grain and rich complexion that look quite beautiful in the parquetry designs inlaid in the dining table top. Parquetry inlay is a very old technique developed early in the history of European furniture-making, when artisans during the Italian Renaissance began to experiment with wood inlays. As furniture makers discovered, the parquetry design boasts a particularly striking, unique appearance, and for that reason the design remains in use today by English furniture makers. The shaped table apron also looks quite elegant, while sinuous legs provide sturdy support to the dining table. There are a few small spots of wear (see pictures), as this English parquetry dining table is about 20 years old, although the table retains an excellent structural integrity. This parquetry dining table seats eight comfortably, so this can be used as a formal dining table for special occasions. As strong as it is beautiful, this English cherry parquetry dining table will last for generations to come, so making it a part of your home would be a wise investment!
