Where Does the Mother of Pearl in our Chests of Drawers Come From?

Mother of pearl, also known as nacre, is often collected from pearl oyster shells, which produce an iridescent surface. This shell is then cut and carved into the shapes you see ornamenting the mother of pearl inlay furniture in our collections. The shells, while curved, have a sufficient expanse of surface to allow for the mostly flat pieces to be cut and then planed before being arranged on the wood, which is then filled with the composite material that makes the resin, and the whole piece is sanded completely smooth at the final stages. The endless variation in patterns of light, colour and tone in the shell mean that each mother of pearl chest of drawers is absolutely unique in its finest detail.
