Wooden Tray Inlaid with Mother of Pearl, L56cm (AG-TY-22402)
Ref: AG-TY-22402

Handcrafted, solid beechwood tray inlaid with mother of pearl featuring a floral centrepiece encased by arabesque scrollwork and interlocking geometric patterns. Around the sides there is further inlay with interlocking geometric patterns and arabesque scrollwork. Marquetry was introduced during the 15th Century by the Ottomans. The arabesque scrollwork is achieved by telkari where the wire is embedded directly into the wood by hand, prior to the mother of pearl pieces being inserted. A brass wire is used in this telkari process.
L56cm, W24cm, H4cm. All sizes are approximate.
