A narra wooden dining table with dark wood double-lined surface-bordered single-piece panel top with lightwood dots-inlaid kamagong frame, and crenellated apron, four thick scrolled legs and one turned central post on crenellated platform with six claw feet. The dining table is accompanied by 2 pieces Carlos XIII style narra wooden armchair and 16 pieces side chairs with single-caned seat, double-caned back with openwork scroll-carved frame and acorn-motif crest, stumped scroll arms, crenellated apron, and softly-curved front cabriole legs and splayed rear legs with claw feet.

The dining table is said to come from the province of Pampanga, a province known for its excellent carpentry and wood carving traditions.

Mr Jose Ma Ricardo A Panlilio acquired the dining table from an antique dealer.  The table was eventually donated to Museo De La Salle.
