Italian term or phrase: bois de rose a farfalla
A description of a piece of furniture: "Il mobile e' placcato in bois de rose a farfalla e ha il piano superiore in breccia di Aleppo."
Traci Andrighetti
English translation:rosewood veneer and Aleppo marble shelf
Explanation:
Bois de rose is the French "rosewood" and "placcato" is literally to plate but I think the correct expression is "veneer".
I'm afraid you'll need someone far more expert in carpentry to explain "a farfalla".
"Breccia di Aleppo" is whiter marble from Aleppo - see this website

Best & high quality marble... Chimneys, cataracts, polls, Arabic ...
