The technique of Brass Inlay was first made famous by a French cabinet maker, André Boulle in the 17th century .Thin layers of Brass are glued together and then cut with a very fine saw into scroll and arabesque patterns. We then lay these into our Rosewood frame. Great skill is demanded by this process as wood and metal expand and contract at differing rates so the edges of the wood veneer must be angled to grip the brass stringing. We take all these consideration into account to produce this stunning example of the highest quality craftsmanship.
Most of our furniture can be made in Mahogany, Walnut, Burr Walnut, Pollard Oak, Rosewood, Yew Oyster and Walnut Oyster and only British hardwood is used. We stock an extensive selection of exotic veneers for special commissions.
Due to natural fluctuations in wood grain and colour the final finish may vary. Exact matches cannot be guaranteed, however our skilled polishers do achieve a very close match to customer requirements.
Our workshops are open seven days a week but please make an appointment so a member of staff is available for your enquiries.
