Foreword

When today's artisans...wish to reproduce an original piece, they need either the piece itself or an accurate measured drawing of it. As an increased number of potential buyers vie for the original pieces still on the market, the prices rise and the pieces often become prohibitively expensive. Sometimes an original may not be readily available at any price. The artisan must then turn to an indispensable book such as this one, which provides accurate drawings of a number of iron and tin objects of enduring interest.
