Egyptian Portable Desk (Restored)
Mahogany, ebony, ivory, mother of pearl, brass, silver, lead, bronze, sulphur inlay. Approx. dimensions: 24 in. long by 14 in. deep by 7 in. high. 2000
Though I did not make this desk, I did rebuild it. Central heating had dried out all the glue, and much of the inlay had fallen out and most of the joints had failed. Putting it back together was like working on a giant jigsaw puzzle.
