Marquetry from San Diego, California

W Patrick Edwards

Those two tables are made in American School of French Marquetry by W Patrick Edwards and they are re-creations of  the “family table” that belonged to Louise-Marie, the eldest daughter of King Louis-Phillippe of France.

The original was probably made by Alexandre Bellange and exhibited at the Products of  Industry Exhibition held in Paris in 1834.

W Patrick Edwards makes his re-creations of antique furniture using only the original tools and methods of the pre-industrial period .

He saves the past for the future .

The full story of making those tables can be read here .

And lots of re-creations of antique furniture can be found on his website :
