“Some Extraordinary Display Features”

Point of interest: these displays were being made and delivered to the United States in 1915, during the First World War. The article goes on to say that this display reached its destination in Portland, Oregon with “all but one pencil displaced”, and that the company also made a display that was a replica of the Statue of Liberty. I wonder where it is now (and if there are some photographs in the archive).
