This product is a previously owned vintage marquetry art piece by former German company Buchschmid and Gretaux (1910). And yes, you saw correctly! It is entirely made of wood (Veneer). The method they employed for producing their inlay pictures was, or is still known as, the Dekorpier method. The company made and sold a lot of their wood inlay pieces to railway companies and shipping lines for the purposes of decorating railway carriages and the state rooms and cabins of the passenger liners dating from the early years of the 20th Century. Can you imagine where this piece has been?
