Memory Lane page title

Welcome to page 13 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.

This marquetry kit was made by "Home-Craft - it is intended as a fire screen 13" x 15".

There are two design sheets in the packet - oneof which is carbon backed & the other has the
veneer key on the back. The key does not quite equate with the picture, so even in those days
they sometimes made mistakes!

These early kitsoften used the 'stick as you go' method of construction. Today we
more or less universally use the well known Window method, which
we find gives a more accurate end result.

Anyway, please do enjoy this excellent design from marquetry's formative years
along with us, thank you :

Thanks to Clive Jones for sending the pictures and info
in to us for inclusion in Memory Lane.
They are wonderful and evocative of a certain 'age' in marquetry!
