Southern Mantel & Tile: Mission Furniture Too

Here we are at the last in our series “Best of the Southern Mantel & Tile Catalog.” Yesterday, I showed where the main office of the company was located, on South Gallatin Street, and I wondered if that was also where they manufactured their mantels, but today, as I was looking back at the catalog, I noticed that the price list noted that while the “Ware Rooms” were on Gallatin, the “Factory” was at Farish Street and the A & V Railroad. Sure enough, I found it on the 1909 Sanborn map, so we can see that at least for a while, Southern Mantel had a going concern in Jackson.

They also sold some nice Mission furniture, including a Morris chair and a rocker that I would love to find and buy for my house.

Here’s the full catalog–peruse it at your leisure and check out the price list at the back.
