Portor marble is a rare and noble element used since antiquity for its unique black color veined with a deep yellow. Used by King Louis XIV for the decoration of Versailles, it was used in the realization of luxury furniture, objets d'art and fireplaces in the 17th, 18th and 20th centuries during the Art Deco period. It is found in particular on the top of the Levasseur chest of drawers, acquired by the Count of Artois in the Louis XV room at the Palace of Versailles. Its availability being very limited today, the Portor remains a prestigious material that continues to find its place in luxurious interiors.
