ABOUT THIS CARVING
Full Inscription: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Origins: The Golden Rule, a core concept of Christianity as well as many other religions and cultures, has actually been traced back as early as 1780 B.C. However, it only became known as the "Golden Rule" in the mid 19th century. Even in the late 1600's it was still known as the "Golden Law."
Early references to "The Golden Rule" are noted in the United States and England by the mid-1800's. By the late 1800's, it was in common use, even appearing as a lesson in the 1879 Revised Edition of McGuffey's Fourth Eclectic Reader. Given its emergence as "The Golden Rule" during this period - and its importance today - we selected a letter style by William Morris, a preeminent English designer and printer of that time. Morris' simplified blackletter style works well with virtually any decor. A great and timeless family piece that is sure be coveted for generations to come.
Source: The concept may date as early as 1780 B.C. with the term "Golden Rule" emerging circa 1850 in both England and the United States.
Recommended Finish: Our lighter toned Classic Oak finish works with many interiors and finishes and helps to create greater contrast to show off the many carving details of this piece to best advantage as well as helping to improve readability at greater distance. However, the somewhat darker Heritage Oak finish is quite nice as well, offering the rich look of a vintage piece.
