Constructed using only the finest stone, this truly exquisite & refined table is a masterpiece in design. The outstandingly beautiful colours & detail throughout exhibits a spectacular flow around the whole table. The superb bookmatched veneer figuration, highly detailed vein cut crossbanding & Verde Antico moulding are the finest you will see. The top sits on an elegant & robust brass base. It is in very good condition for its age.

     
    Onyx has many varieties & it is often difficult to precisely place the stone used and its location, however, the onyx used within this table is without question exceptional.
     
    Verde Antico, or Verd Antique, or Verde Antique, as you know, is a serpentinite breccia, popular since ancient times for its decorative uses & is regarded as one of the finest & most valuable of stone. It was known to the ancient Romans and was quarried especially at Casambala, near Larissa & Thessaly, in Greece. Verde antico was much used by the monumental builders of the Byzantine Empire and by the Ottomans after them. The term "Verd Antique" has been documented in English texts as early as 1745.
