A Jewelry Palace in Boston

Boston, Mass., June 4. —The Shreve, Crump & Low Co. are now entirely removed to their spacious new building at the corner of Tremont and West Sts. The company occupy the entire building, and all the departments of the business are filled with a valuable stock of goods arranged with artistic effect.

The street floor, having an entrance on each street, is fitted with handsome counters and side show cases, filled with jewelry, silver toilet and library ornaments, rich parasols, coaching shades and umbrellas, and art stationery. At one side of the Tremont St. door is the watch repairing section, where the time is recorded from the Cambridge Observatory. Opposite is a cosy diamond room. Each of these departments is enclosed with ornamental railings and plush draperies. The rear of this floor is called the silver room, which is screened from the main part by a beautiful portiere.

The second floor contains the white and gold room, filled with bronzes and fine porcelains and pottery. One Sevres vase, representing the seasons, in the Louis XVI. style, is valued at $2,500. The third floor is filled with antiquities. The walls are covered with robin’s egg blue tapestry, from Paris. The furnishings are all specimens found in foreign countries by the agents employed by the firm. They include cathedral clocks, huge chairs of Italian oak, tapestries of the Gobelin, Flemish and Italian periods, an elaborately-carved stall taken from a cathedral in Vienna, and priceless old china and crystal. Quaint writing tables, massive bedsteads and handsome mirrors are also among the many interesting bits to be seen here, every one of which has its history. On the fourth floor are displayed lamps, gas fittings and open fire-place furnishings, and the fifth floor is filled with goods used in the interior decorations of mercantile establishments. On the sixth floor are the diamond-setting room, the engraving departments, the clock and music-box repairing rooms, etc.
