A top made in scagliola for a 1940's dresser.

I was inspired by a beautiful French stone called Brèche de Vimines.

In times past quarried from the area of the southeastern Alps, near Chambéry, is a pudding whose

appearance is unforgettable after having looked at it for a few moments.

The rounded elements, of yellow limestone, a few centimeters, are surrounded by concentric layers of

red-pink limestone, the whole cemented by a limestone paste, of a somewhat darker red.

The first picture compare a sample of a natural Brèche de Vimines beside the scagliola version,

while the last two pictures are taken in such a way to show

the highly reflecting

surface.
