Description / Expertise

Music cabinet 1900 
Marqueterie in fruitwoods. 

In 1900 Galle was at the height of his career. His wood workshop had over ten years of experience and was fully grown. 
His workmen used motor driven tools to make basic shapes, the finishing touch was done by hand. The woodcarving of this cabinet is a sculpture done by an artist. So is the marqueterie of the daffodil flower. More than 25 different sorts of woodfineer are used to make the marqueterie. The butterflies on the drawer are like small “paintings”. The cabinet has a light touch, spring is in the air, after a long cold winter nature starts to awaken. 
Galle made his furniture to be used. Behind the door there are two shelves. In the open part you can put sheet music or books. Nature is used as inspiration.
