End Table in Polished Cast Bronze and Genuine Ebony Top
The end table combines a polished bronze cast base with a top made from genuine Gabon ebony wood.
Each base is individually cast by skilled bronze artisans using the ancient process of lost wax casting. This is the same technique used for thousands of

versions of an original pattern. Once the bronze has cooled, the molds are broken from the bronze parts and then the bronze is laboriously chased to a
Gabon Ebony is a member of the Diosypros family and comes from northern Africa. It is an historic wood and has been used for thousands of years in the
finest made furniture and interiors. In fact, the french term for furniture maker Ebeniste derives from their one time specialization and use of this wood.
To make parts from this very precious and rare material requires extreme skill and knowledge. We source quarter logs or cants of solid ebony and re-saw
them in our studio into a special thickness veneer that is stabile and suitable for use in furniture - a process that was used by masters of a bygone era,
honors the tradition of furniture making and brings it into the future. When you think of this veneer, you shouldn't think of cheap paper thin commercial
veneer on plywood, think of the surfaces that were used to cover the finest royal furniture for hundreds of years, handmade, special. Once the Gabon
ebony veneer has been created, we apply it to special substrates using proprietary techniques and adhesives and polish and finish it to the highest
standards using the finest modern methods and materials for a finish that will be timeless and stand beautifully for years to come.
