Cream Color Inlay on Nicole Box
By Rod Cornelius

I am currently having a case of a fat cylinder box, circa 1851,
restored.  The inlay on the top has brass stringing around the inlay
and has a blue composite material as part on the design.  It also has
a material that is creamy in color with bright high lights, not unlike
mother-of-pearl.  This is in a boarder scroll.

Could anyone tell me how I could replace bits of this?  Is there a
replacement substance available?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
