19th Century French Marquetry
Before Restoration: Direct Water Damage
1.) This piece was basically destroyed from direct water damage and it was rebuilt.
2.) The floral marqueterie on the drawers had lifted and there was moderate loss.
3.) The front vertical columns had intermittent missing veneer.
4.) A hemisphere from a carved leg had delaminated and was lost in the flood, so it was replicated.
4.) All the joints were separated.
5.) The original stardust patterned veneer on both tiers were salvaged and restored.
6.) After restoration, it was French polished.
