About this title

Synopsis:

Dust jacket notes: "Emeralds, gold and semi-precious stones. Exotic freshwater pearls. A bronze Buddha. Museum-quality jade. Antique brocades. American folk art. Lalique, Baccarat, and Steuben. Picasso, Matisse, Diebenkorn and Henri. The treasures of faraway times and places, the contemporary and the classic, in short, the best of everything has been found since 1861 at one store: Gump's. This is the story of Gump's in pictures and prose, from its historically significant beginnings to its major role in the cultural, social and economic life of San Francisco. S. & G. Gump Company began during the heady days of the California Gold Rush as a purveyor of mirrors, mouldings and frames, went on to establish itself as a premier source of Oriental treasures and European art and successfully emerged as the retail epitome of good taste and San Francisco style. This beautiful volume is both a celebration of the glory that is Gump's and a glimpse of San Francisco's unconventional past. The name Gump's is synonymous with San Francisco and San Francisco taste. Like San Francisco, Gump's is old and young, traditional and modern, serious and fun, Occidental and Oriental. Its enigmatic character endears it to San Franciscans as well as to shoppers the world over. Discover the richly textured and diverse experience that is Gump's in these pages."
