Tulip Marquetry Dining Table

84″ long by 44″ wide by 30″ high
Curly Anigre, Ash Burl, Anigre, Ebony, and various marquetry woods
This is a large elliptical dining table that features a Curly Anigre veneered top with marquetry imagery of two red Tulips on a background of Ash burl.  The marquetry center is bordered by dark green and white square banding framed by two thin Ebony inlays.  The base is composed of several curved bent laminations and is finished with satin black Conversion Varnish.  The table was designed for a client with a strong interest in the Ottoman Empire so the Tulip marquetry drawings were based roughly on artwork of Tulips we found from that era.
