IN presenting this Catalogue, we take advantage of the opportunity to call your attention to the fact that this year 1928 marks our Golden Jubilee, our business having been founded in 1878, fifty years ago, during which time we have built up a reputation of which we are justly proud, and to express our appreciation of your patronage which has been most helpful, and hope that by maintaining the high standard of quality and finish on which our reputation has been built, to merit a continuance of your patronage.


Patterns marked "Mahogany" or "Walnut" are of solid Mahogany or Walnut throughout. Where veneers are used for decorative effect, that fact is noted.
