Antique French Inlaid Marquetry Bonheur Du JourSKU: by Marylebone Antiques
Antique French Inlaid Marquetry Bonheur Du Jour
Very impressive antique French Bonheur Du Jour in excellent condition with many fine details. The floral marquetry is exquisite & the abundant gilt bronze mounts are very fine quality. The top has gilt bronze galleries on the top & across the open end compartments. I’m not sure about the wood, but I think it’s predominately kingwood & mahogany. There’s also a lot of cross banding decoration & inlays, plus many other exotic woods used in the marquetry. This table has a cupboard on the top, two drawers below with locks & sits on tapered turned fluted legs. I would say this piece dates from around the 1920’s period. It has just been re-polished & the stunning marquetry, plus the grains within the wood are very vivid. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate all the fine details.
