“A deal door is beautiful, but it will not keep clean; let it then be varnished. It is now preserved, and its own characteristic features are enhanced by the varnish, so that its individuality is emphasized, and no untruth told.”

– Christopher Dresser, Principles of Decorative Design, Fourth Edition
