No Furniture is more dainty and full of charms than the Colonial Outfits we are
inheriting from our grandparents. New models are taking on the same beautiful lines

AS TO PRICE
The very low ptice quoted on this Furniture is due to the fact that we ordered it in
quantities so large. Several times in the past few years we have made similar large

now offering can be duplicated later on. y

Hvery piece is of real mahogany of true and beautiful grain, caiefully and finely
put together with perfect dovetailing, dust proof linings and satin?smooth interiors
characteristic of fine cabinet making, and completed in the soft, old, dull, hand-rubbed
finish. Such bedroom furniture will last generations and give solid satisfaction to its
