A Mirror to Harmony
The most beautiful painting cannot rival
the wealth of detail reflected in a per
fectly flat mirror. So, with The Cheney,
every rich detail of harmony is faithfully
reflected by plancsurfaced tone chambers.
Each delicate shading of tones, high, medium
and low, is blended with mellow over
tones.' The Cheney reveals new beauties
in all records. The art of old-world furni'
ture designers is also reflected in the crafts
manlike finish of Cheney cabinets.
