Lacquer-work
Certain metallic and wood objects to which coloured and frequently
opaque varnishes called lacquer are applied. The word lacquer is
derived from lac, a sticky resinous substance that is the basis of some
lacquers. But the lacquer of China, Japan and Korea, which is made
from the sap of the tree Rhus vernicifera, should not be confused
with other types of lacquer to which the term is generally applied - for
instance, the lac of Myanmar (Burma), which is produced by the scale
insect Laccifer lacca, and the various solutions of gums or resin in
turpentine of which European imitations of Eastern lacquer have been
and continue to be concocted.

 Piqué work
Decorative technique, usually employed on tortoiseshell, in which inlaid designs are created by means of small gold or silver pins. The art reached its highest point in 17th- and 18th-century France, particularly for the decoration of small tortoiseshell articles such as combs, patch boxes, and snuffboxes. By an adroit arrangement of the gold and silver pins, by placing them in small or large clusters, effects of light and shade could be created in the design. In the finest French work, the pins are placed so close to each other and with such accuracy that they appear to form a continuous line. Decorative motifs include chinoiseries scenes, geometric designs, and arabesques. In England, where the craft had been brought by the Huguenots at the end of the 17th century, Matthew Boulton (1728-1809) in 1770 developed mechanical methods of producing piqué panels. Many of his designs show the influence of the Neoclassical designer Robert Adam (1728-1792). During the 19th century, piqué was widely employed for small tortoiseshell jewellery, much of it after 1872 being made by machine in Birmingham, England.
