Travertine and Antique Terracotta Inlayed Tables

Deruta, Italy is where this beautiful handcrafted table was created. The tradition of high quality craftsmanship has been handed down continually from generation to generation for over six centuries.

Each travertine table like this begins with the scouring of the Umbrian and Tuscan regions to find the one of kind antique terracotta pieces, the pieces found are then used as the inlays in these exquisite and unique tables. The Terracotta inlays in each table are found by sifting through mounds of debris from the time worn and fallen walls of villas or farmhouses that maybe up to 600 years old. Many of the markings on the terracotta inlays in these table are often of the historical crests of the regions or maybe of the family's crest which owned the property centuries ago..

After the size and shape of the travertine is complete it is decided how to make the most of the inlay design, this way all the valuable pieces of the terracotta from each villa or farmhouse can be fully utilized. This step may require several days to a week but it is essential as the designs are not laid out in haste. After a design has been rough fitted the artisan's go to work hand-sanding and fitting each piece of terracotta. When all the pieces have been fitted properly the inlay is then bonded to the travertine frame in a permanent fashion.

Deruta, Italy often shows us how the artists have perfected the art of making truly unique and valuable items, and the town is synonymous with prize-winning pieces that are highly collectible throughout the world. Each table is truly unique!!

We have a variety of sizes and design available, please feel free to ask if you would like to see the other tables in stock.
