About

This extremely rare and important form is the first example of what is known as the Minguren IV form. The original prototype sits in the Minguren Museum at the Nakashima Studio. Dramatic marbling grain highlights the free edge and boat top which is supported by two tapered columns, giving the form an elegant stance.
At 12 feet long, this table is the first of its size and form to come to market.
