Regency Style Marquetry Table with Serpentine Walnut Top
This impressive piece of furniture arrived with a number of issues. Most obvious, an expansion crack at its serpentine top ran through veneer, substrate, and carved apron. Further, areas of marquetry veneer, as well as inlaid banding, had released and were now lifting from their substrate.
The large expansion crack was in-filled. Lifting and releasing marquetry work was consolidated and re-attached. French polish brought back the deep color of wood veneers used in marquetry patterns, walnut veneered top, and carvings throughout the piece.
