Also including a fully lined interior with inlaid drawers and a small cupboard as well as a slide above two short and two long drawers with further inlay. Brass hardware to the doors and drawers is also cast using the 'lost wax' technique. The perfect addition to a sophisticated study or gentleman's office.
Marquetry is the art of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures. 'Seaweed' describes marquetry of Italian origin in the form of conventionalised small-scale foliated or twining forms somewhat resembling seaweed. It became especially popular in late 17th century England, and makes for wonderful pieces of decorative furniture.
La Rochelle Collection
The La Rochelle Collection showcases the unique and highly skilled art of marquetry and conveys it through classic 18th century furniture styles. Many of the pieces have taken countless hours and days to create and perfect, and they are all truly pieces of beauty to display with pride.
