This is a rare find and only 5 exist
They measure 55"+/- wide and 92" long. The table is a standard 29 1/2" tall.
Estimated to be 400+ years old they represent a time before the Biltmore House was even constructed.
Beautiful "flaming" and quarter sawn fleck. Super remarkable grain patterns. A very large section of curl also
The base is made from 200 year old hand hewn timbers. The table supports are 2" thick figured white oak. Hand cut mortise and tenon joinery ensures generations of use.
The center "trestle" is made from twisted steel to form a rope. Crossing off center.
Finished in a hand rubbed lacquer that eliminates the white rings that can form under some vinyls and polyesters. A very natural look and feel yet easy to maintain.
Ships to the US with terminal pick up or white glove service
