It is probably only a matter of time when other Metal Ceiling manufacturers will try to follow in our footsteps.
We took an advanced position when we originated and put in practice the idea of producing metal ceilings in complete “ Classified " designs of famous artistic styles.
This advance position we have been holding ever since, and in keeping with the character of our goods we have adopted for them the distinctive and appropriate name of "Classic" Metal Ceilings.
As a matter of course, the trade appreciates their value and superiority. Even competing manufacturers recognize the advantages of Berger's "Classic" Ceilings (although, of course, they can't be expected to admit it).
We venture, however, to predict that they will eventually proclaim the fact by themselves bringing out a few more-or-less complete “Classified" designs, perhaps they may even use the distinctive name "Classic" that we have adopted, and advertise their goods as "Classic" Metal Ceilings, who knows?
In any event we will still be found heading the procession. Our line is not only by far the most complete and comprehensive, but we are steadily adding to it, thus further increasing the already safe distance by which we lead.
For up-to-date Ceilings, come to us.
