ORNAMENTAL   LATHE   
by  WILLIAM GOYEN
ca. 1875

 
"Mr. Goyen (1814 - 1898) is believed to have been a Cornishman who went to work in South America as a railway engineer and returned, in his mid-fifties, to the UK.
 
Having settled at 77 Park Place, Newton Abbot, in Devon, he began to manufacture very high-class and extremely expensive ornamental lathes - of which around twelve survivors are known
. "
