Walnut wood, mother-of-pearl
Art & Collectible
|Place of Origin:||
Syrian Arab Republic
Fine and elegant mosaic design. Made of walnut wood and genuine pieces of mother-of-pearl. Handcrafted in Damascus, Syria.
On the inside, the board is mostly covered with plain walnut wood (dark brown texture) in-between the mosaic design patterns.
The point heads are made of mother-of-pearl to give the board a unique touch of luxury. The board is also distinguishable on the inside by its very beautiful contrast of light and dark brown (walnut wood) design.
This table exists in 4 versions: you can choose between walnut-made or olive-made squares; aged and regular versions exist for either kind of wood. Aging here means that the board has been made to look as though it had been aged, a process that results in the object gaining a darker tint.
BEWARE OF SELLERS CLAIMING THEIR MOSAIC PRODUCTS HAVE INLAID MOTHER-OF-PEARL! Most of these products contain FAKE (plastic) imitation of mother-of-pearl. Please be informed and learn to distinguish between genuine and fake mother-of-pearl, read this article now.
