Historicism table in Bruntál (CZ) museum. I created replica of this table with my schoolmate Jan Hruška. It was for practical exam at the Hight school of furniture and bussines in Byst?ice pod Hostýnem. Maple wood with pigment paint.

Excellent carvings, incredibly uniform. I’m curious what the original maple looked like before painting.

Thank you. I will upload photo of unfinished table. Finish is pigment glaze, not very good (but school instructed it).

What a wonderful reproduction! Who gets to have the piece when you worked on it with your schoolmate? Or will it reside in a museum?
