I would really like to purchase a zinc table however after reading the reviews I did not anticipate it scratching so much. Is this typical for all zinc? I absolutely do not want a glass top table so purchasing a glass topper is not an option for me. Are the scratches part of the character of the table and livable? Or would it look bad? I know all of this is relative to opinion and taste but some direction and advice would be much appreciated. I do not want to purchase and have to return. Thanks.

Story Behind the Art:
This product was created in North Western India. Once the British removed its armed forces from the region in the late 40s, a majority of the industries available for the local economy disappeared with them. The indigenous people went back to the traditional crafts and furniture manufacturing that they had known for generations. This industry has truly created a renaissance in economic growth in the region.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The table is exactly as pictured. Unique and a striking piece in my Dining Room. As usual with Overstock, it arrived quickly. It was very easy to assemble ( just a few screws). It perfectly completed my vision...until my daughter put her notebook down to do homework and the surface scratched! Then the glass vase of flowers was slid an inch or two and...more scratches. Not what one needs for a Dining table and a house with 3 kids! I was so disappointed, but knew this wouldn't work for us. I called Overstock to do the return and they were fantastic and so helpful. They readily agreed to begin the return process but also promised to contact the manufacturer to find out what the situation was with the surface. In the meantime, I looked exhaustively to find a replacement. I found nothing that I liked nearly as much. Finally, I had an epiphany. Glass! I discovered that I could buy a piece of beveled glass to put on the top, thereby preventing the scratches and making the table functional without losing its look/character. I called Overstock back to stop the return. Not only were they incredibly nice/friendly/helpful, but they also volunteered to credit my account the cost of the glass top! THAT is the kind of customer service that will keep me singing the praises of Overstock and continuing to be a loyal customer. We love the table. The addition of a $!#$ glass top not only made it functional, but also even more attractive!Read More
The first table arrived poorly packaged in loose bubble wrap, which surely accounted for the broken board that attaches the tabletop to the base. The second arrived in fine shape. I like the looks of the table much better than I had expected, although the black top surprised me a bit. The base is very lightweight, yet provides an adequate and sturdy base. The top seems to be painted metal. I'm not sure where the "zinc" comes in with the product's description because I am sure the metal is not zinc. Because of the mystery finish, I would never let a child eat directly off the tabletop as I do a glass topped one. (I've opted out of spending the extra $XXX for a glass top for it.) Again, I love the look; however, I'd totally love it and give it five stars if it were half the price.Read More
love this table! Looks just like the photo. Thanks Overstock for great delivery service. It was very simple to put together and couldn't be happier with how well it looks in my dining room. I did take the advice of the other review and purchased a glass top for it. My four cream colored faux leather chairs make a beautiful set. Such a pleasure doing business with you!!!Read More

Does this come in a smaller size?
Hello, kimbrrlee22. This table does not come in a smaller size. Thanks for shopping with us. l.b.
The reviews for this table say overstock suggested a glass top to go on top of it to avoid scratches - what top was that?
Hello decodivahope, thank you for your inquiry! The reviews are done by customer. However, if you contacted a glass company they should be able to cut you a round glass top 48 inches. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!
yes I have this table and purchased a glass top to avoid scratches. Becareful to measure your top as mine was slightly smaller than 48 in in diameter. Didnt cost much and glad I followed other customers advice. However,I believe the natural aging and raw beauty of the zinc top is best if left uncovered. I have had my table for a year and havent seen any oxidation or color variations. may remove the glass down the road after kids move out!!
Would this table hold 6 chairs?
Thank you for shopping with us yolainelr. The circumference of the table is approximately 12.5 feet. That is about 2 feet per chair, tight in my opinion. I hope this helps.
