Antique Italian trestle dining table. What makes this Italian farm table, or dining table so unique, is the one-piece top, which essentially means, that the entire tabletop, was made from one huge piece of wood. Although the grain of the wood, for our country Italian dining or farm table, appears to be similar to walnut, I am just not 100% confident that it is walnut, but it’s our best hypothesis. The distressing of our Italian farm table, is all natural and nothing is contrived or as been added for aesthetic purposes. Our old plank finishers, only cleaned up the heavy scratches and did not sand or repair anything, although if you look closely, you will be able to see old repairs. This is a great and very rare Italian trestle dining or farm style table and most likely dates from the early 1800s.
