Naked Nymphs in La Belle Province, oh Heresy, oh sacrilege .
But it's true that the clergy, doesn't have it's original stangle-hold over the general "population" anymore, thank God.
Do you have pictures of Messervier Junior's handywork?.

Hi Claude,

No, I don't have a picture of the Nymphs! Messervier Jr. was doing various designs, using a computer and making black decals that contrast with the light wood of the faceplates. The nymphs -- well, I don't know that they are really nymphs, it just fits the art nouveau theme, they might as well be called "naked ladies" -- were on a box that he made around 2002.

I've got some pics of Messervier boxes, but none that are close-up enough to see the patterns clearly. Anyone who wants to see one, BTW, can send me an email off-list.

Thanks, Mike for stopping these two scoundrels .


Re: Re: Pinstripe on the corners

Just a reminder, here was your question:
"Does this pattern signify something? Historical? Traditional?"

Re: Re: Pinstripe on the corners

Same style, but used in an original way for this builder in the Netherlands.
