OVINGTON'S "The Gift Shop of Fifth Avenue" Fifth Avenue at 39th Street See Page 13 for Other Loeser Advertisement " The Best Player "Piano hy Far that I Have Seen in All My Looking Said a Man Who Very Quickly Made Up His Mind to This One After He Had Played a Few Favorite Rolls. He made reference to the instrument Loeser's has secured to sell at $385 and that has been an object of uncommon interest ever since it took its place on the Salon floors. Our "Season Special," we have christened it, and it is proving its right to the distinction. "I found no scarcity of Players at around that price," he continued. "But I must say that I got no such musical satisfaction out of playing any of them as this one seems to give me. I want one of these Players." And it surely is a great instrument. After a search to find whether there was a Player being made anywhere, in these days of higher costs, that could be sold for $385, and that Loeser's could conscientiously recommend, we came across this one just as we were about to conclude that the days for such a Player had gone by. There will be Players to sell at this price for as long as Players are made. No one will ever have difficulty in finding a Player for $385. But there are Players and Players. The enjoyment and music you will get out of a Player-Piano will he no better than the instrument itself. Here is a Player that will give you quality in both, and in no ordinary measure. It Is the Loeser" Season Special" Player at $385 It is made by a manufacturer the whole Player industry of America holds in highest esteem and that any owner will mention with no small amount of pride. Match it against any you discover at its price and you will be satisfied that it is no ordinary instrument and that at $385 offers no ordinary opportunity.
