This shop In Portland, on the cor
ner f Seventh St. and Salmon !s
one of the most Interesting I've ever
seen in any city. It Is one of the
landmarks one of the oldest houses
In the city, consequently it comes as
a surprise when one is looking for
an art shop and the salesrooms of
the Arts and Crafts Society, to find
one's self entering a little quaint old
house with an old brass knocker on
the door. Within it Is all artistic
beauty gives one the feeling of the
Empire Colonial period. Fine old
Pieces of mahogany tables, high
boys, serving tables,, an old clock,
fine reproduction of some of the old
masters,, mezzo-tints in quaint old
frames, fine old silver and crystal, in
fact the many things that go to make
an art shop Interesting, but so clever
ly arranged here, that, as I said, you
feel you are back In the old colonial
days the empire period, which was
the finest and best of the colonial
period. This shop was the home of
the late Mrs. Hugh Hume, a woman
devoted to fine things. She made a
trip East In the early spring of 1908,
and arranged for work to be sent here
for a large arts and crafts exhibition.
This was held In 'he arts museum of
Portland, and what was left over
from this exhibition was taken to
Mrs. Hume's home, the present little
shop. Mrs. Charles E. Curry re
turned from Europe that spring, and
those two women, Mrs. Hume and
Mrs. Curry, established In the little
old home the salesrooms of the Arts
and Crafts soolety.and, from the
small beginning, has grown the pres
ent art shop, which today occupies
the whole house. Mrs. Hume was a
sister of George DeForest Brush, one
of the most celebrated American por
trait painters, and he was living in
Florence, Italy, at the time Mrs.
Hume opened her little shop. He se
lected and bought for her most of
the rare and beautiful bric-a-brac,
pictures, etc. This shop is the only
one west of Denver that carries the
handsome silver of the Boston Craft
ers. The beautiful silver service that
was presented to the Rev. and Mrs.
A. A. Morrison, of Trinity church,
on their 25th anniversary was pur
chased from this little craft shop.
Here, too, you can find those beauti
ful embroideries and drawn work on
Russian linen, brought to this coun
try by Mde. de Blumenthal and the
German and Japanese orpss-stitch em
broideries, that are so very beautiful
In coloring and design. Since Mrs.
Humes' death, In May, 1910, Mrs.
Curry has carried on the business.
She has associated with her Miss
Jones, a,very capable assistant. From
March 10 to 25, there will be a, very
Important exhibition of English mez
zotints and the Herter loom textiles
In the shop, to which every one in
terested in fine art and the art
and crafts Industries will be most
cordially welcomed. The exhibition
is free. Mrs. Doolittle, of Salem,
will have her studio for exclusive
Interior decorating and house fur
nishing with Mrs. Curry In the shop
of the Arts and Crafts society, at 225
