A GIFT of furniture is a gift that entwines
itself more closely as the years roll by.
The chair or desk you send to-day will be
just as charming ten years hence. ?And when
the Christmas of 1932 rolls 'round, your gift
will still be the earnest of your Christmas
good-will of 1922. Very decidedly, a durable
gift need not be an expensive one. These
nested tables are solid mahogany and cost
k^ $36 for the set.
