Brass inlay work on wood
During the early 19th century, it was considered a symbol of wealth and opulence to inlay delicate pieces of brass into wood, especially for box decoration. Furthermore, the brass also strengthened the boxes, especially at the corners. This art form was only attained by the most skilled and patient craftsman. Not only would the brass itself have to be carefully hand fretted and filed into ornate and fluid designs, but it would also then have to be precisely inlaid into the wood without fault. The richer colored woods like Teak and Rosewood were often favored for use with brass inlay work as these combinations really emphasized and contrasted each other with great effect.
