This cabinet presents wood-turned columns and ledges made of bone along with the fillets.
Much of the stylized decoration was missing as well as the decorative filleting on the top and the sides.
The ebony veneer has naturally lighter areas that add to its originality.
The restoration work involved redoing all the bubbled or missing veneer and all the inclusions of fillets and lost decoration.
Following a fine sanding, I redid the black parts before preceding with the traditional sponge-applied varnish.
To note, I also replaced the missing lock with a lock from the same period, which, with its key, had to be adapted to the original opening.
