Here is a piece of furniture of Syrian origins and its chair, which I restored together.
The piece has several components and mother-of-pearl inlays on all the elements, which meant missing pieces of veneer to replace.
In addition, it was necessary to create a mother-of-pear decoration on the upper part to fill in the rather unsightly holes. Turned pieces of walnut were added to the legs to gain the height necessary to be able place one’s legs beneath once seated on the chair.
This type of furniture required a quite meticulous finish to highlight the decoration composed of religious symbols referencing verses from the Koran, either engraved or in mother-of-pearl.
I reserved the same finish for the folding chair after restoring the folding axes and button ends and replacing some of the bone inlays.
