Why this is a
Masterpiece

The dining table is a masterpiece because of its excellent Filipino craftsmanship and design. The sheer length and width of the table is a rarity in Filipino furniture tradition and both the solid hardwood narra and kamagong materials are of the highest quality.

History of the Object
It is recounted by the heirs of the Henson-Hizon family of San Fernando, Pampanga that it is on this very table that General Masaharu Homma and his staff planned their strategies for the final battle of Manila during the Second World War.
