Marquetry handles

We've been playing around with some Walter Dorwin Teague design ideas for some time now, and using his original pieces to produce new work with the same styling. These handles have a Geometric Cubist pattern, and can be made in either marquetry veneer or painted finishes. The handles themselves are quite simple in shape, they just act as a surface for the pattern. We've shown a couple of finishes, but you could have these in whatever finish you wanted. But they would add a real wow to any piece of furniture; we've shown them below on a cupboard and a wardrobe, to show that the handles can be scaled to the size of the furniture. These could also be used for kitchen or bathroom units and other pieces. The handles could be made from most woods. Marquetry is a skilled handcraft, and each design is labourously cut and assembled one piece at a time. Due to this it is not cheap - but then what value do you put on using something beautiful and practical everyday? The handles are gripped from the side, to avoid the marquetry being handled. We generally only supply these as part of a furniture order - made to order.
