French manufacturing, richly decorated with marquetry representing profiles on the sides and with the entire surface of the furniture floral and geometrical patterns. We can consider this piece as a ceremonial piece of furniture. The woods are of very contrasting nuances, and like most often in plum, Mirabellier and cherry marquetry it is wood that one stays in the East of France, the fir tree was chosen for the building.

They are chosen because they capture a large amount of glue due to their low density. It is the best guarantee for the good performance of the bonding of the various materials which cover.

Sébastien Napoli, antique dealer-restorer explains: "There are many alterations for marquetry furniture."

Antiques and pieces of antique furniture, depending on their exhibition or storage, have undergone both thermal and hygrometric variations over decades. This is manifested by withdrawals from the support woods. Micro-friction on the bonding surface does not help either and causes cracks, lifting can go as far as detachment.

Restoring old furniture in a few steps:

  • dismantling -Restoration of the chassis
  • Peeling of all the pieces of marquetry in bad postures
  • Re-bonding and replacement of missing or damaged parts
  • Pickling
  • sanding
  • Waxed varnish
  • polishing and reassembly of bronze pieces
