Welcome to page 4 of our Memory Lane feature where you will find lots more exhibits from
the early days of the marquetry movement and the formation of our Society.
In the sixties and seventies the Marquetry Society often included a small veneer pack
along with the picture design for the respective issue of the society's magazine The Marquetarian.
We thought that all of these veneer packs would have disappeared many years ago and that their
existence would have been consigned to memory. But, only last week, a complete veneer kit, along
with its picture design, Marquetarian and original envelope was brought along to your editorial
team. Naturally, we photographed it and are now presenting it here to rekindle fond memories
for the older members of the Marquetry Society.
These kits were made, by special arrangements with Art Veneers Ltd, for the Marquetry Society. The printed design drawings were numbered and keyed to correspond with the supplied veneers in order to help the marquetarians assemble those quarterly issued design drawings into completed attractive marquetry pictures.
If any of you, our readers, have any items you would think suitable for this
would you photograph them and send the picture to us by either e-mail
(as jpeg pictures) or, if an actual photo, to our "Contact Us" address.
We will be very pleased to display suitable "Memory Lane"
items on this page for everyone to enjoy.
