This piece is a three dimensional model of a classic 1930's Mission Style Staircase. Made by craftsmen steeped in the tradition of woodworking in miniature, model makers par excellence. Touch and let your fingers walk the steps.

Crafted in the manner of models made by members of a French Guild. Prevalent from the Middle Ages it reached its zenith during the 17th through the 19th centuries. In the compagnonnage apprentices first developed technical skills and studied geometrical drawing and design. They then were sent on a Tour de France, working with masters throughout the country. Ultimately each produced a guild masterpiece or matrise demonstrating mastery of joinery, cabinetmaking, carpentry,
and design concepts and techniques.
