Today Friday, August First
The August Sale of Furniture
We have assembled for this calendared annual event (original with this house)
what we are credibly informed and believe to be the largest assortment of furniture
ever brought together in any store in America.
Certainly the finest and most valuable!
This statement is made by each of our two stores--New York and Phila
delphia because it is true of each.
Each store is offering in the August Sale about three-quarter million dollars
of furniture over a million and a half in the two stores, the two stocks being inter
changeable at will over-night.
As 'a matter of fact, proved by observation, about the only competition we
have in these August Sales of furniture is that between our two stores.
In the special purchases, reaching in the New York Store nearly $400,000,
there is a saving to our customers of $100,000.
In our large fine regular stocks, which many people reading this information
have already seen on our floors, there are new low markings averaging twenty per
There is wide choice in "the kind of furniture that the great old Masters
made," which so many people are now asking for Sheraton, Hepplewhite,
Chippendale and Adam, and in the Jacobean, William and Mary, Queen Anne,
Colonial and Elizabethan periods.
Some of the Chippendale furniture is especially interesting because it ex
presses the Chinese influence with lacquer decorations and gold work.
In addition to the furniture of the English schools there are many fine
suites and pieces in early French designs, some in Spanish and some in Italian.
Great care has been taken in the selection of all pieces, and the highest expert
knowledge has been employed to avoid false or mixed types.
The Exhibition in the Auditorium
is attracting marked attention because it presents reproductions of famous museum
pieces and some originals (genuine antiques), whose history is certified to us.
We have always had this sort of fine furniture in our stocks, and these very
pieces are from our regular stocks but it is the first time we have had the oppor
tunity of showing them together in proper surroundings.
You will thank us for calling your attention to this Auditorium exhibition,
for it is even better, in an artistic way, we are told, than the Wallace collection
