THE UNIQUE CO WAS STARTED IN 1889 BY GEORGE W. BAILEY AND HELD MANY PATENTS
AND WAS LOCATED AT 46 PARK PLACE NEW YORK. THEY HAD HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS AND
EMPLOYEES IN TWO PLANTS IN NEW YORK. . THE 3 YEARS FROM 1905 AND 1907 WERE THE
HIGH WATER MARK FOR THE CO. A PERIOD OF ECONOMIC OPTIMISM WHEN THE PUBLICS
APPETITE FOR EXPENSIVE LIGHTING WAS AT IT'S PEAK. THE CO. EXECUTED VERY ELABORATE
SHADES WITH THE MEAN SALES PRICE OF $35. IN 1917 THE WAINING DEPRESSION YEARS,
THE CO. WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. HERE IS A CHANCE TO OWN AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF
AMERICAN ART HISTORY.
