George III 18th Century Demi Lune

This Demi Lune was chosen from ‘Ralph Edwards’ The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture, Plate 24, Page 253. The piece was comissioned by the customer and was adapted to their requirements.

The cabinet pilasters, the turns, and all the solid clashings are solid rosewood. Brazilian hardwoods have been used for the marquetry refinements (the application of pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs). The carcase itself is Fijian Kauri Plywood and the rails are New Zealand Kauri. The inside veneer is Fiddleback Sycamore. The doors were laminated upon solid formers and built to suit. The finish is French polish.
