Paperblanks Exotic Marquetry Mother-of-Pearl Mini 4 x 5.5 Inch Journal
( Last 2 : blank + lined paper )
Our Mother-of-Pearl cover is inspired by a glorious example of 18th-century cabinetry that features inlaid panels or marquetry taken from an earlier piece, possibly one made in the East Indies in the late 17th century. The term marquetry comes from the phrase “to mark a tree” and involves applying thin decorative surface veneers onto solid wood.
Paperblanks designed another beautiful design replicating mother-of-pearl inlay, inspiring your senses and words to flow. Other materials employed in marquetry include wood, metal, laminate, pearl, bone and precious stones set in dark woods, preferably ebony. The particular style used in our example is called Tarsia a Incastro or boulle marquetry, after French cabinetmaker André-Charles Boulle (1642–1732). He was Master cabinetmaker to King Louis XIV, and his furniture and pieces made in the Boulle style are found in the world’s finest collections. This design has a magnetic wrap closure. The wrap folds over the front cover and is held securely in place by a magnetic closure.
