Inlaid fossil wood table. Fossil wood and petrified pine cones that are thought to be around 200 million years old, inlaid into black marble. Beautiful wood specimen.The fossils come from cones or trees submerged in water, perhaps muddy swamps. Slowly minerals replace the organic matter over millions of years, literally turning wood to stone. Could be used as a coffee table, side table or console table.
Objects of rarity and quality should not need replacing. Good craftsmanship and materials speak for themselves. Handmade pieces embody the energy of a craftsman. Mass produced objects look like mass produced objects, despite an often high price tag.
Antiques and bespoke items are truly of merit as they retain intrinsic value, simply by being created by hand. Indeed, there is life in hand made objects.
