The Badminton Cabinet is considered to be the marquee, top of the range architectural piece of furniture. Auctioned for nearly $37 million, it is widely believed to be the most expensive piece of furniture ever sold.
The Badminton Cabinet happens to be covered in painterly scenes rendered with amazing finesse in chunks of colored stone. We are proud to have reproduced these magnificient pieces as pietra dura plaques. The first plaque is in size 19.8 Inches by 15.1 Inches = 50.2cm by 38.6cm. The second plaque is also the same size – 19.8 Inches by 15.1 Inches = 50.2cm by 38.6cm The plaque below shows birds and flowers in the same style as the Badminton Cabinet and is of size 19.8 Inches by 15.1 Inches = 50.2cm by 38.6cm In addition to these, there is a set of plaques showing floral motifs and birds in size 8.5inch by 15inch (21.5cm by 38cm):
All these are done using pure and natural semi precious stones like agate, malachite, lapis lazuli, amethyst, mother of pearl and jasper among others.
