"Le mobilier se compose de trois crédences françaises et d’un cabinet italien du XVIème siècle. Ce meuble est remarquable par ses incrustations de nacre et d’ivoire gravé à la plume."
This is a description about the decoration in the room of Francois 1st, the French king in the 16 centry, at the castle of Chenonceau. I'm not realy sure of what "gravé à la plume" could mean here. Could anyone advise?
Thank you for your posts! I really wondered what this expression means, and after all, I concluded that it would be a decoration graved by a quill or a feather, but still not so sure. In any case, I appreciated your helps very much. Thank you all.- 2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
