OPEN STOCK DINNERWARE
While manj' sets cannot be complete until after the
war, we have recently completed a number of popular pat
terns in American and English Porcelain, Haviland, and
Limoges China. Where we have not been able to dupli
cate patterns in many cases we have bought patterns that
are similar, that will be suitable to use together.
Some of the patterns are entirely new,
others are the popular patterns in dainty de
signs or trimmed in gold, our stock of .white and
gold Haviland china being especially good. As
prices are steadily advancing, we would advise
early selection, for -even where stocks can be
reordered the price will be much more. '

dishwashing are saved. These salient points plus the fact that
it can be used for serving upon thoi table as well as for cooking
the food, make it a constant appeal to the woman who takes
pride in her kitchen ware and the products she turns out with
Our line includes all the popular pieces in the most wanted
sizes. Moderately priced.
