      Spindler Marquetry

To a contemporary visitor , the Spindler marquetry at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900, was one of the most striking memory of the show.

Je tiens à citer les meubles de M. Spindler...

M. Spindller est un Alsacien qui offre en ses
marqueteries, du plus large effet; une matrise etonnante; il a des qualités de peintre, et met dela poésie; de l' émotion en ses panneaux de bois.

Jean Lahor[1], L' Art Nouveau, 1901; pp. 39 and 40

Spindler (1865 - 1938) was a German from Alsace (although, after the first world war, Alsace belongs to France) and the family is now the third generation dealing with marquetry always in Alsace, France.

The visitor at the Exhibition was right, since Charles Spindler was trained as a painter and watercolorist and became a self-taught marquetry artist in 1893.

There are two works of Spindler here and here, posted in a great marquetry Flickr user homepage.

There is a nice book to buy on the topic on the Spindler website.

Marqueterie (the French word) is deeply rooted in fine French and European crafts, see below...
