An important branch of commercial activity, and one deserving of special mention in a review of the leading business interests of Brooklyn, is the importation of china, porcelain, crockery, art goods, etc. In Brooklyn, numbers of art rooms, as they might aptly be termed, are devoted to the exposition of foreign wares, and the attractiveness of the merchandise, and its artistic arrangement, bespeak the taste and systematic methods of the proprietors. The largest and undoubtedly the finest establishment in New York or Brooklyn engaged in this trade is that of Messrs. Ovington Brothers, whose extensive warerooms are situated at Nos. 246 to 252 Fulton street. This progressive and representative house was founded in 1845 by Messrs. Ovington, who conducted it till 1879, when they admitted Messrs. Ovington into partnership, the business, however, being still conducted under the style and title of Ovington Brothers. The premises occupied are very spacious and commodious, and consist of a mammoth six-story warehouse with basement, which is completely stocked with a splendid assortment of artistic pottery, crockery, glass, porcelain, china, and art goods. These beautiful articles constitute one of the most striking evidences of man’s wonderful power in the region of art. This enterprising firm has its sources of supply in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Limoges, Worcester, Dresden, Leeds, and Rudolstadt. Its plaques, vases, and objects d’art have been painted by the most famous foreign artists. The table wares consists of superior goods of Minton, Copeland, Worcester, Haviland, and various other celebrated manufacturers, too numerous to mention. The pure crystal glass offered by Messrs. Ovington Brothers comprises berry bowls, celery trays, comports in leaf, shell, and other forms, also plain and engraved glass. Ovington Brothers’ art room is filled to repletion with the richest and most elegant productions of European ateliers. The collection of sculptured Carrara marble statuary is very interesting, embracing over thirty figures and groups, while the real bronzes, lamps, silverware, and French clocks are very attractive. The statuary collection, besides facsimiles of such exquisite antiques as the Venus of Milo, Mercury of John of Bologna, the Thinker of Michael Angelo, and the Dying Gladiator, contains all the latest productions of the rising school of the French artists. In short, the immense showrooms of this responsible firm are marvels of elegance, taste, and beauty, completely stocked with thousands of handsome articles of art and use, which will eventually adorn the mansions of the rich and the cottages of our citizens. The goods of this widely known house are unrivaled for quality, style, and excellence, and have no superiors in this or any other market. A large force of employees pay polite attention to visitors and customers, anti the pleasure of a visit is greatly enhanced by their courtesy. The partners are thoroughly practical men, connoisseurs in this department of art, and are highly regarded by the community as business men of rare energy, and upright private citizens.
