At over 11 feet long (137 ¾ inches), this antique dining table from Italy can seat 10-12 adults comfortably. The table was hand-carved from oak wood in the 1800’s in Asti, in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. It has been stripped of the original finish more recently, resulting in a neutral beige color with a light gray accent.
The two and one quarter inch thick top has some lovely deep graining that is now visible as a result of the stripping process. Two shapely pedestals, with added stability from a robust single plank stretcher and wedge pins, support the massive top. The angular legs in balustrade form with scrolled feet give the table a less linear feel. They are beautifully carved and positioned to maximize seating capacity. Our grand oak table from a villa in Asti, Italy, is the perfect dining table for a large dining room.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with old fills to age separations. Minor discoloration and nicks in some areas. The table has been stripped more recently, resulting in a beige hue with gray accent areas.
