The Italia dining table, by Marquis Collection. The Italia design is made using 100% natural fossil stone in two colors, white ivory and beige. The scissor style pedestal base is truly magnificent. There is an oval glass portal built into the dining table top, enabling you to see through to enjoy multiple aspects fo the base. Artisan craftsmen in the Philippines begin this design by hand shaping a hardwood core form for the base, top, and leaves. Then, individual tiles of fossil stone are shaped by hand and bonded to the hardwood form. To finish, they hand sand and polish the entirety of all surfaces, making a smooth polished fossil stone masterpiece.
