A RARE PIECE
OF FURNITURE
DOUGLAS, Dec. 23. ? There is on
exhibition at Brio's Drug Store a ta
ble, made by L. G. Thomas, cf the
Alaska Furniture nnd Undertaking
Company, of this city, which Is a mar
vel of beauty and workmanship. It
Is designed after the famous Louis
VXI style, Is hand-made, and veneered
In rich mahogany. The top bears a i
beautiful design, composed of wild i
roses, morning glories , sun flowors,
and ripened heads of wheat, and the
frame of tho tablo is designed to
match. These designs are all inlaid
with various kinds of rare wood, such
as orange, white holly, and elm. They
are artistic beyond tho power of
words to describe. In order to bo ap
preciated by tho artistic temperament
they must be seen. Mr. Thomas did
all tho work by hand, right down to
the f.'nishing and polishing. There
probably has never been another such
speclmeu of artistic beauty in furni
ture turned out in Alaska. This con
cern has been engaged In the under
taking and furniture manufacturing
business in Douglas for a great many
yenrs, but it will doubtless be a reve
lation to the people of this vicinity
that such work as this table con be
turned out hero.
