Most of the manufacturers' literature--including catalogs, fliers, and brochures--deals with outdoor furniture and ornaments, statuary, and iron work fixtures. Some of the materials relate specifically to product lines by Florentine Craftsmen, though many illustrate the work of other manufacturers of outdoor furnishings and ornaments.
