It seems a work for two QSqlTableModel...

If you use the QTableView to view the data, you don't need
QDataWidgetMapper. You can activate the edit triggers to directly
modify the data.
How to do that is well explained in the PyQt Book by Mark Summerfield,
who posts here sometimes, in particular in the chapter 15. You should
download from the book site the source code of that chapter and look
to the assetmanager example.

IMHO you don't need SQLAlchemy, you can do everything via the QtSql module.
