The inlay wood and marquetry of Syria and Egypt.

Boxes, trunks, jewelery boxes and chess boards from Syria and Egypt, Spain.

The inlay technique refers to the veneering or inlay of fine sheets of precious wood, ivory or bone, mother-of-pearl or shells covering a wooden body.

It appears very early in history, in Mesopotamia, around 2600 BC, as witnessed by numerous objects found in the excavations of Ur).

The Odyssey of Homer and Pliny the Elder name objects made according to this technique. It was also known in Pharaonic Egypt, and it was perpetuated in Coptic and later Islamic times. In particular, one set of boards date from the beginning of the Islamic period. They have a geometric decoration: a game of checkers and rhombuses associated with motifs of arcades and stylized columns. This precious-looking decoration still bears the mark of late antiquity. In the Fatimid period (10th-12th centuries), motifs and style evolved.

It was in the 12th century, under the Seljuk Atabegs and the Ayubids that inlaid woodwork developed considerably, mainly for the furnishings of religious buildings. Marquetry work, which uses ivory and mother-of-pearl, and associated with the finely carved wood enhances the strictly geometric decoration of the complex motifs centered around eight- or ten-pointed stars.

This association of complex geometric networks, built around star-shaped polygons and rich inlay work, will find its fullness in the Mamluk period, in the decoration of great pious foundations. During the fourteenth century, an important use of large inlays with ivory elements sometimes stands out.

In a more miniaturist style, furniture elements are made, such as the kursi and the Koran box, in inlaid wood with ivory, bone, and precious woods.

At the same time, the Christians of Egypt also used this technique to decorate their churches.
