Adolphe Pelsener called Ado Chale is a trained ironworker who made his first weapons in the creation of enamelled advertising plates.
The beginnings of his creations are devoted to silver jewelry, during the fifties, it is during this period that he designs the first tables in resin inlaid with stones of the marcassite.
In 1961 his wife opened the «Chale Gallery» on Rue de Livourne in Brussels. The gallery later moved to Avenue Louise and presented original creations by various artists.
Ado Chale imports minerals and fossilized wood from Arizona to decorate the polyester tabletops he makes. These trays are mounted on blackened tripod feet or cast aluminum.
Chale consists of semi-precious stone mosaics, jade, turquoise
lapis-luzuli, agate, tiger eye… But also flows tables in bronze or cast aluminum known as “water drop tables”.
Ado Chale and his wife make a major contribution to the Belgian decoration scene.
Today, Ado Chale is still active in his workshop on the rue de Lens in Brussels
is an online gallery opened in 2017.

I have been always collecting…
Since my earliest childhood, I have been interested in a multitude of subjects, started with an aquarium in my room, and transmitted the virus to the rest of the family.
Afterwards I passionately maintained a greenhouse with orchids.
From the age of 15 I started looking for enameled advertising plates, going all over Europe in search of the rarest pieces.
I turned quite naturally to contemporary design (Sottsass, Memphis …) and then moved to the decorative objects of the second half of the 20th century with a special love for Murano glass and later the rich, complex and poetic work of Line Vautrin.
To live, objects must move, find another home, other owners who will cherish them.
The creation of this website will allow me, I hope, to make beautiful encounters and to arouse passions.
We are of course talking of Passion, I am and remain first of all a collector. But every collector is somewhere a little bit dealer.
My network will perhaps allow me to find the piece you’re on the hunt for or acquire the one you want to resale. Do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to answer and satisfy your request.
