BEFORE AND AFTER--FRENCH DECO MACASSAR EBONY CONSOLES

AFTER




BEFORE




Well it's only been 10 months and many more $$$ than I had imagined spending at the outset of this journey.......but the French Deco Consoles are finally ready (of course there is always a "but"--Camilo forgot to add the little platform feet--hopefully those will go on tomorrow and Roberto will pick them up....
But I'm still in love with them. They are attributed to Alfred Porteneuve, nephew of the famous Ruhlman, The tops have been restored, but the bases have simply been refinished. The original macassar ebony was in overall good condition, but the tops had to have their macassar veneer replaced and, fortunately, Camilo was able to match it. The marble is also a restoration, but period authentic.

Sending blessing for the last few days of summer.
