Of all the historic pointing styles the most difficult to execute was and remains the 'tuck pointed' finish. Properly executed, it is a method of pointing in which an illusion of finely gauged brickwork is achieved by filling the joints between the bricks with a colour-matched mortar which is prepared and then thinly grooved to receive a finely trimmed ribbon of lime putty and silver sand mortar called 'fine-stuff'. It evolved during a period of great refinement in construction and appears in England during the end of the 17th century and then virtually died out during the early years of the 20th century, with the overall decline of traditional craft practices and, after the Second World War (1939-45), easier and faster to erect masonry systems, a changing building craft practices; and a growing acceptance of ever-lower standards of workmanship.
