Whittall's Anglo-Persian Rugs are the highest
achievement in the art of weaving rugs by ma
chinery. Into their making, for more than a gener
ation, have gone the finest materials, the most
painstaking care. ,
Every thread of wool is imported from the moun
tainous regions of Persia, Afghanistan and the Cau
casus. Every particle of dyestuff is tested repeat-.
edly. Every improvement that inventive genius can
suggest is utilized in their smooth, lustrous finish,
their proved and tested serviceability.
In our windows this week is a notable display of Anglo-Persian rugs. Many
more in all sizes are on our floors. They aire new; most of them arrived last
week. They are well worth seeing.
We sell Anglo-Persian Rugs in the 9x12 size for $55.
This is no more than you would pay for the same rug in New York or Chicago.
It is some $400 less than you would pay for an Oriental rug of equal beauty
and durability. If you care about your home we believe that an Anglo-Persian
Rug will yield a larger return in permanent satisfaction than any other $55 in
vestment that you can make. J ' :Y
