The Figured European Sycamore belongs to the subfamily Hippocastanoideae and originates from Central Europe, where there are only a few different species since the Ice Age. It can reach a growth height of up to 30m and a trunk diameter of 1,5m. The bar maple shown here is a very sought-after growth variant of the regular product with a very decorative character. The wave-shaped moving veneer image is determined by more or less regularly strongly pronounced stripes that are aligned transversely to the fiber course. Its veneer is used mainly in the production of furniture.
