Description
Mahogany, ebony, brass, white pine, yellow poplar, unidentified hard woods. These richly decorated dining room furnishings were made for Simon Gratz (American, 1773-1839), a successful Philadelphia businessman. Many American cabinetmakers imported panels with brass inlay, also called boulle work in honor of Frenchman André-Charles Boulle, who perfected the technique, to adorn the furniture they produced, as seen here.
