A Pair Of 16th Century Marquetry Panels.

A pair of Elizabethan inlaid Nonsuch panels. With contrasting wood decoration (marquetry). This style represents a tradition of furniture-making introduced to English urban centres by transplanted Germanic artisans. Most English furniture of this type was produced during the late sixteenth century in major immigrant communities such as Southwark London. The format of ornament seen on these panels as well as other examples of late Elizabethan movable furniture and woodwork employ contrasting and often costly inset woods (bog oak, holly, ebony) to create architectural tableaux depicting fantastic cityscapes.
The architectural decoration is popularly assumed to represent Henry VIII’s celebrated Nonsuch Palace, Surrey, particularly with reference to the fanciful towers.
The applied arcades are later and the early panels have been made into a pair of doors in the Victorian times.
