Commissioned by a dear and extremely patient friend. A matching set of Claro Walnut end tables.
The marquetry technique was popularized by Andre Boulle while he worked in the shop at the Louvre, when it was a kings castle. The Marquetry flows through to the stretchers and then the motif is repeated in the pierced carving on the shelf below. All Marquetry, shaping and carving is done by hand, eye and blade.
