EVERY BED IX OUR Dlbi uAY is representative of
the highest attainable standard in design, quality,
workmanship and finish. The utmost care was exercis
ed in the.seleetion of this stock and it is offered for your
inspection with a knowledge that only the Best is in
cluded. OUR DISPLAY OF BRASS "ART BEDS" is excep
tionally worthy of notice. Beside being the most beau
tiful. Brass "Art Beds'' are by far the strongest, most
durable, yet lightest, on the market. Not a single screw,
bolt or nut is used in their entire construction, and yet
when finished, every Brass "Art Bed" is as if made of
one solid piece of metal. When one recalls a few of the
troubles experienced with the old style constructed
beds, it is easy to understand the many advantages of
"Art Bed" construction. And then too, they cost no
more than the others.
