Them Bones....

I have always loved Bone Inlaid Furniture and recently came across this stunner.....

Can you imagine the time and attention to detail it would take to make something like this?! This is not a piece you aquire on a whim. This is a keeper! Something you would (hopefully) pass down to your kids and grandkids.

One thing I have always wondered.....what kind of bones are they? It may seem like a wierd question, but that's where my mind wanders! Sometimes they are 'Mother of Pearl' which is just a fancy way of saying Abalone shell.

I hope to one day own a piece of bone inlaid furniture, but for now will have to settle for my Turkish chess set!




Whether bone or shell, I think they are amazing! What do you think about bone inlaid furniture?

Like you said- stunning! I can't imagine what the price would be on something like this. It would definitely have to be an inheritance piece! Thanks for the share---

I think they are camel bone...hopefully the camel led a long life and died of natural causes. Same goes for the abalone.
