Portland, OR. Roy Mason for Mayson Overstuffed Inc., 1925.
Illustrated catalogue, 9 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches, 24 pp. featuring the Overstuffed Line of furniture. Cover illustration depicts an overstuffed sofa in front of a stylishly draped window at least 16 feet tall. Adjacent to the sofa is a banner containing the admonition: "By Your Home You Will Be Judged," i.e. Watch Out! Three holes along spine for convenient placement in a ring binder.
