We also undertake the restoration of Boulle work which is invariably brass inlaid in to tortoiseshell.
Boulle work is a specific type of marquetry developed by Charles Boulle. ANDRE CHARLES BOULLE (1642-1732), French cabinetmaker, who gave his name to a fashion of inlaying known as Boulle or Buhl work.
Boulle is composed of tiny pieces of ivory and brass or copper, ebony, and tortoise-shell,all kept together with glue and tiny chased nails, and applied very often to a rather soft, white wood, Alternate heat and humidity are even greater enemies of inlaid furniture than time.
