A. Steinhardt & Bro., importers, exporters and manufacturers of “fancy goods.” Fancy goods is a term still in use today that was much in use a century ago to refer to luxury items such as giftware, ornaments, fragrances, toys, dolls and god knows what all too diverse to fit any more specific term. It was also used (as defined in Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary of 1913) as “fabrics of various colors, patterns, etc., as ribbons, silks, laces, etc., in distinction from those of a simple or plain color or make.” – Walter Grutchfield, 14t042 dot net
