In Response To: restoring marquetry (Ivo)

That looks like a real project. Looking at the pictures I agree that it is probably a birds wing at the bottom especially since the upper one is clearly a wing most likely in flight. You might check to see if there are any area marquetry associations. Someone in such an organiziation may be able to point you to sources of patterns for antique designs. One other source would be museum curators.
