Dining Table, Antique Wood and Sand Cast Sculptured Bronze Base by P. Tendercool

$22,400

About

We were asked by our dear friend and a long-term fan to create what he called “the best of the best” or “crème de la crème” which would become a show piece at the entrance of his mid-century modern house in Bangkok. The thought process behind this was to join two Antique Chicken-Wing (???, Jichì mù) wood slabs which is at least one hundred years old and mounted on our classic PT2 legs in sculptured bronze to evoke an old-world charm. Code / Specification: 2ATOP-PT2L-BZ2-CW-DO 203x134x74 Top: 2 antique chicken-wing woods Top finish: Diamond oiled Base: PT2 sand cast bronze Base finish: Sculptured structured natural Dimensions (W x D x H): 203 x 134 x 74 cm 80 x 52.7 x 29.1 in Antique hardwood P. Tendercool founders are former antique dealers who collected about 200 slabs of antique Chicken-Wing Wood (???, Jichì mù) over a period of 15 years. This wood was venerated during the 'Ming' dynasty and coveted by literati and scholars for its beautiful grain, "like feathers of a bird" Our slabs were collected in Northern Vietnam, close to the Chinese border. Back in the 19th century, villagers would place two identical 'Slices' of the same tree next to each other, directly on the floor, to serve as a dry platform to sit, eat, and sleep on. This explains why our slabs come in pairs, typically about a person's size, in various thicknesses. Inspection of the underside shows they were clearly cut by hand (pre-machine age!), without traces of legs nor decoration. Unlike the Chinese refined 'Kang' tables for the well-to-do, these 19th century slabs were purely functional furniture. The simple fact these wooden slabs still exist is proof of their stone-hard quality: many decades of humid-hot, termite-infested surroundings have had no noticeable effect other than them remaining solid witnesses of a bygone era. We keep them in their original unfinished state awaiting clients' preferences. We currently own two hundred slabs, an extraordinary collection for you to select from. Table bases Our table-bases are sand cast by hand, one by one, by Octogenarian Armando Benato and his team. Armando started working with his uncle when he was fourteen and even worked for artists like Salvador Dalí. Care for a better reference? Most of our bases are available in Bronze, Brass or Aluminum in a number of finishes.
