We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to ensure the authenticity of our objects. An exceptional and magnificent extending table in Art Deco style; the sumptuous and sturdy Sapele wood base with its distinctive and elegant shape supports a large and massive top also made of Sapele, forming an imposing and majestic whole! The table is extendable, but it did not have its two original extensions, so we arranged to have them made by our team of craftsmen. They are made of wood and fit the table perfectly (see photo). The width of each is cm.40, so with the two extensions mounted, the table reaches a size of cm.240. The table also has been hand-treated with ancient techniques by our team of specialized restorers and is in excellent condition. The most compelling part of this object is the wonderful and fascinating top made of Sapele wood with unique and special workmanship done completely by hand that includes meticulous flattening and a special polishing done in 12 steps with a cotton pad soaked in shellac, straw oil with pumice stone powder, these techniques have allowed us to enhance the chromaticity and flaming of the Sapele wood giving our table a unique and exclusive elegance and refinement. Sapele (or Sapelli or Sapeli), is a species of fine wood with a reddish hue native to West Africa., has characteristics similar to mahogany and in some applications even better than mahogany itself; it is a strong, hard, compact, and rather flexible wood; also because of the attractive appearance it is used as a substitute for mahogany for high-quality furniture, such as cabinets, tables, chairs and chests of drawers, for fine cabinet-making work, for making musical instruments and for furnishing luxury boats. Sapele is characterized by a color shade ranging from red-brown to dark brown, often with darker veins and black stripes. Its texture is uniform and has a lustrous appearance. In addition, sapele is known for its strength and hardness. It has good impact resistance and durability, making it suitable for use in furniture and objects subject to mechanical stress. The table was made between 1930 and 1935 in a cabinetmaking workshop in Bordeaux, in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, a city that had a tradition of furniture making in the 18th and 19th centuries. The furniture produced in Bordeaux ranged from Louis XV to Neoclassical and Art Deco styles, with an emphasis on working with fine wood. The table has been carefully restored. Our table, thanks to its demodé charm and its qualities of elegance and refinement is able to give suggestions of times gone by and exclusivity, making tradition and functionality dialogue with each other in a discreet way. The table has been completely restored so it is in excellent condition. Measurements length cm.160, width cm.100, height cm.74, extended cm.240. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (custom-made wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
