BEADED AND ROPE MOULDINGS. At the time of writing, these Mouldings are very much in style for building work; for cabinet work they have always been in style, the main objection to their use being the former high cost of making. They are now produced by special machinery in very large quantities, and at very low prices.
AS TO WOOD —Oak is the only wood carried in stock. Other woods can be furnished to order only, and cannot be furnished in small quantities, excepting at a greatly advanced cost.
AS TO STYLE, AND SIZES —We carry in stock the styles and sizes given here; can furnish other styles and sizes, but not in small lots.
AS TO SHAPE —These Mouldings can be furnished halved or quartered at small extra expense for sawing, the buyer getting the two halves or the four quarters of the material. Sizes under s cannot be sawed, nor will we saw quantities of less than 100 ft. of a kind.
AS TO LENGTH —They are made in lengths of about 3 to 4 ft.
AS TO PRICES —The prices given here are on small quantities. On account of the expense involved in handling small quantities, the prices are necessarily very high, although, perhaps, one-tenth of what it would cost to make something similar by hand. For any decent sized quantity these prices would be shaded materially.
