This catalog displayed metal ceiling designs that were in stock for immediate shipment from their New York warehouse. The photographs included measurements of each feature, and some of the borders and center medallions also had a side profile indicated. These details make this catalog very useful for the buyer to envision the scale of each decoration. Unusual; we haven't had a catalog from this company before.
