Boulle Stationery compendium comprising tortoiseshell handled letter opener, tortoiseshell page turner, and pair of scissors.

The "Boulle" name comes from the famous André-Charles Boulle who was made famous for veneering furniture with marquetry of tortoiseshell, brass and pewter. Although he did not invent the technique, Boulle mastered the art of this complex marquetry and lent his name to its common name: boulle work. Boulle also specialised in floral marquetry in both stained and naturally coloured woods. Many of his designs are illustrated in a book of engravings published around 1720.
