Framed Photograph of Brazilian Walnut Logs

Description (Brief)
This photograph of Brazilian walnut wood is one of forty-nine framed black and white photographic prints bequeathed to the Smithsonian by William F. Bucher of Washington, D.C. Bucher, a cabinetmaker, framed each photograph in wood of the same species as the tree depicted in the print. The photos were displayed in a special exhibition, Our Trees and their Woods at the United States National Museum in 1931.
The logs shown in this photograph were located in New York, New York. The Bureau of American Republics gave the image in the frame to William Bucher. The frame is made of Brazilian Walnut (Imbuya) veneer on spruce, and the back band is made of ebony.
