Mother of pearl

Mother of pearl has been used since Ancient civilizations. In the Middle Agles, it was used to make luxury objects. From the XVIth century on, after new territories were discovered, its use became more common. It was used as inlay to decorate furniture. During the XVIIth, XVIIIth and XIXth centuries, this material was widely used for buttons, boxes and marquetry.

We can provide irregularly shaped mother of pearl plates (10 to 12/10 mm thick) as well as variously sized round-shaped chips.
