Few Words to Prospective Buyers
Of Upholstered Furniture
' The first question dear lady you should ask after
entering a shop is, who made this couch or lounge, what is it
made of and can you guarantee the work?
Now, let us tell you, no dealer can do that unless the
work is done under his own eyes; lounges and couches are
made by contract in factories, and no manufacturer can
guarantee piece work Quite different with, us dear lady,
we will show you the lounge cover first, so you examine the
quality, then we will show you the springs, wool, hair,
or excelsior, as the case may be, and guarantee that either
material is used for a certain piece of furniture you may
