Grand 8 Foot Hand Chiseled Saluki Dining Room Table Signed by Noted Artist, Peter Gutkin
Estate grand dining table by noted San Francisco artist Peter Gutkin which is signed and dated 2000. Do check out his web site. He calls his work, EARTHY INSPIRATION - MODERN INCLINATION.
According to the artist this was the last table that he chiseled by hand. He is now using a power assisted wood gauge to carve, making this, in our minds, an even better value. This Saluki dining table was done by his own hands in the In-Situ style.
This came out of a home on Lake Champlain facing over the water, being boat shaped and the hand chiseled effect to this estate represented the water. They paid $60,000.00 plus for the table and after conferring with Peter Gutkin, he substantiated this and advised that the table would now sell for at least $68,000.00.
Measuring 8 feet long, 54” at one end and being shaped like a boat, 42” at the other end and 30 inches high, the top is extremely heavy, measuring about 2” thick, and is ebonized and cerused quartersawn oak, taking at least 4 men to lift it. The cast stone pedestals are a polyester composite and wood.
