Late 18th Century Large White and Red Marble Italian Dining Table,1780

The colorful palmette motif creates an absolutely elegant, lightweight design.

This table top is a piece of fine decoration, adorned on the sides by a two-tone marble band.

This small masterpiece was created around the late 18th century, without question in Rome.

It is likely that its making owed to the rediscovery of classical art after the mid-eighteenth-century excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Its style and design recall the mosaic floors of patrician villas of ancient Rome.

Now it is covered with a plate glass top to protect it, which can be removed as needed.

The marble top is currently seen as a dining table on a Plexiglas base made in the 1990s, but it could just as easily be made into a gorgeous living room coffee table or a wonderful wall panel decoration.
