2011 Acquisitions

Description

This series consists of three albums of photographs of a variety of furniture and interior furnishings manufactured by A. H. Davenport Co., Irving and Casson, and their successor Irving and Casson - A. H. Davenport between 1880 and 1973. Albums have titles and volume numbers assigned by their creators; however, one set of labels is now missing and it is not possible to discern the appropriate volume number. The albums are the same style as 83 other photograph albums in CC010.002 that are presumed to have been used in the New York sales office; these appear to be three of the missing volumes from that series.

The albums have 296 pages containing 228 black-and-white photographs. A variety of furniture and interior furnishings are depicted in the photographs, including mantels, small tables and reredoes. Digital images of approximately 33% of the photographs in the albums are attached to the records of the related albums.
