- n. Same as buhl.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A heavy buhl-work writing-table opposite the door was littered with maps, books and journals; there was a sécretaire book-case in Chippendale by the side of the enormous fire-place, in which a great coal fire burned; and above this was an ivory overmantel of exquisite work.
A table stood in the middle of the room, a handsome piece of buhl-work.
