Label: Abraham v Straus Fine Furs.  Abraham & Straus is a venerable Brooklyn department store founded in 1865.  It eventually became a holding of Federated Department Stores, and, in 1995, the Abraham & Straus name was dropped in favor of the use of Macy’s.  The large department store in Brooklyn is still stands as a Macy’s.
