Ultra High Quality / Old-World Master Craftmanship / Hand-Carved / European Revival Elegance / 10-Piece WALNUT (Butt Walnut) Dining Room Set
Butt Walnut is walnut veneer sliced from the root bowl of the tree. Because of all the branching and growing upwards and outwards down here, very complex and attractive grain patterns occur. This include swirls and complete circle patterns that aren’t seen when the veneer is taken from the trunk. The butt or stump of the tree is the section above ground nearest to the roots. At this point of the juncture of the trunk with the roots, the fibers of the wood are distorted by the changes in direction, and also by the effects of compression due to the weight of the living tree. Gorgeous figuring results. Very rare and desirable.
Set Includes: 2 arms and 6 side chairs, table with 3 leaves, plus sideboard.
Rectangular Table: 30″ High x W46″ Wide x 30″ High – Table Extends to 108″ with 3 x 12″ leaves
