This unique publication presents to the reader an exceptional collection of some 450 examples of the finest handmade woodwork of the twentieth century. Almost 200 designer-makers are represented, providing a gallery of superbly crafted work including furniture, sculpture, turnery, gazebos and conservatories, toys and automata, musical instruments, decorative boxes, marquetry, and other wood ware such as carved love spoons, lace bobbins and jewelry. Thumb-nail sketches give penetrating insights into the designers' philosophies to their work and aspirations for the future. Through the text one becomes aware of the very real dedication, care, and concern this rare breed of craftsmen have between them, not only for their own satisfaction of knowing that they are producing fine quality work but also for us - their customers - that we are getting the best in craftsmanship and design. This is an important work of reference for interior designers, homemakers and all wood enthusiasts, as well as a delightful book to read or browse through at leisure. To complete the book a list of designer-makers' names and addresses appears in the index. Illustrated in colour and black and white.
