This stunning, handcrafted, Rose marquetry picture is made out of individual pieces of wood, and would be a beautiful gift that will last forever.

Size 14" x 6".   

Marquetry is the art of assembling many thin slices of veneer wood to create a picture or design.  Natural veneers from all over the world are used but with certain colours missing, it is sometimes necessary to used dyed wood.  This beautiful picture is 100% handcrafted and to make it is a long and time consuming process that requires much patience and skill.  Once it has been decided on the types of veneer to be used they are then cut with precision using a special knife and assembled.  It is like a large jigsaw puzzle putting together often hundreds of small pieces of veneer, from many different wood species, to form the the picture.  Once completed it is carefully glued onto a piece of hardboard ensuring that the joints cannot be seen.  Finally, the picture is sanded to give a smooth finish and varnished for protection.

Marquetry is an ancient form of art that was practiced over 3000 years ago by the Egyptians and later the Romans.  From the 17th to 19th centuries it was very popular with wealthy Europeans who used it to decorate their furniture and house interiors.  Today marquetry is still regarded as a quality handcrafted product.
