ISBN 9782930451282

Apart from its internationally famous thermal waters, the town of Spa holds many other lesser-known riches. The Jolités are fine representatives of the most exquisite marquetry and painted or inlaid decoration, developed thanks to the vibrant “Bois de Spa” manufacture. With the art historian Lydwine de Moerloose as your guide, linger amongst the varnished recesses and artistic details, while admiring the mastery of their design. Discover this craft form, which took root in the 17th century, developing as part of the town’s history and through modern-day collectors and decorators currently bringing it to our attention.
