About

An elegant center table with a beautiful Botticino marble top. The top rests on a mahogany veneered skirt. The skirt is made in solid pine and is attached to the column by a wooden thread. The central column has a baluster shape that ends in a tripod base with claw feet and is made in solid mahogany. The wood has warm rich color with great patina. The skirt is 3.15 inches high and the top is 0.79 inches thick. The total height is 28.94 inches and the diameter is 39.37 inches. The table has been cleaned and checked in our atelier. Small damages to the veneer on the skirt were repaired and a the whole piece was gently polished while retaining the original patina. It now is structurally sound with the possibility to remove the top. The Botticino marble is a special type of compact micritic limestone of beige color, quarried from Botticino, Nuvolento, Nuvolera, Rezzato and Serle in the province of Brescia. The deposit of limestone from which we extract the Botticino Classic marble was formed between 190 and 60 million years ago by the slow and continuous process of sedimentation, cementation, and recrystallization of calcareous mud in a "sea lagoon" of Mesozoic age. The tropical climate housed organisms and fossil, that is now one of the most popular features of the marble. The variety of colors of Botticino Classic marble is originated from the different concentrations and trends of inclusions of organic and inorganic origin in the homogeneous background composed of fine mud, mainly carbonate and limestone, which takes the name of micrite. The extreme compactness, the porosity, and the low values of absorption make it suitable for use outdoors and determine the mechanical characteristics such as resistance to compression, bending, and wear. For the beauty and the great qualities of strength, Botticino marble is widely used in architecture and interior design and is considered a worldwide very fine marble.
