I just want to show these four pieces of jewelry
They are hand made, 19th century,small, well assembled and well finished.
All decorated with bronzes.
Two of them get the cabinetry maker name and one get the company name on it.
Number 1: Table à écrire Louis XV
Number 2: Table en cabaret Louis XVI
Number 3: Table marquetée Louis XV
Number 4: Commode à vantaux Transition
I just would like to show this item, how it was,
It is a walnut tea table, we call it « Table à thé ».
I am showing you the stains that were there and there:
And then it became like this after it went to my workshop.
To make it clean I did not use sand paper at all.
So the good point is the patina is 100 pour cent preserved, but the flip side of the coin is
that at some point some stains are very slightly remaining.
Anyway the table is nice.
I finally could make a maintenance to the Gothic cabinet I had and I put it back online,
you can see it here :
Please check this out, the marquetry is really impressive:
This is online now, an Art Nouveau, wrought iron chandelier, signed « Degué », circa 1920.
