From the premier manufacturer of its time . . . (and still today) A real treat . . . just gorgeous designs . . . * ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ the Original ~ Decorators Supply Co Illustrated Catalogue of Wood and Composition Grille and Fret Work ~ Chicago ~ 1905 ~ 64 pages (The Original Antique Catalog – not a reprint, CD or reproduction) (Full Catalog physical description and condition provided in the Book Condition Section later in the auction.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I shouldn’t have to say a word about this very RARE catalogue . . . it can easily “speak” for itself by showing the page after page of fantastic designs . . . from THE artisan manufacturer of elegant architectural supplies. If you love the sensual Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts eras you will WANT this antique treasure! A high quality catalogue - oversize and printed on glossy high quality paper . . . Just page after page of creative and artistic Wood and Composition grilles and fretwork for the interior of the home. There are several hundred designs for ~ Panels ~ Medallions ~ Room Separators and more . . . in all sorts of sizes and shapes . . . We justly lay claims to the distinction of being the foremost people in this country in the manufacture of Fret and Grille work . . . In addition to all the BEST Homes of the era, the company supplied the products used in famous buildings and lobbies of grands hotels etc. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ About the Company (from their website): Decorators Supply Corporation traces it's history back to 1883 when the original founders, Simon Strahn and Richard C. Foster, established a partnership to manufacture "artistic decorative accessories". By 1893, Decorators Supply had blossomed into a manufacturer of cast ornamental plaster. They became one of the manufacturers of the mouldings that would adorn the buildings and halls showcased in the Columbian Exhibition of 1893. This World's Fair of 1893 attracted a wealth of world class artists, sculptors, carvers and craftsmen to Chicago. Decorators Supply drew from this rich talent pool the German, Italian and Polish artisans who over the following four decades would create the artistic legacy seen today in their product offerings. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I will point out that the company is still in existence today! As mentioned in the catalogue, in addition to these Fret and Grille Work products, they offered several other important products that they manufacture (these are NOT shown in this catalogue on auction): ~ Exterior composition for the ornamental features of buildings for Capitals, Brackets, Cornices, Friezes, Panels, Arches, Shells and Gables ~ Interior fibrous plaster in connection with plaster finish for relief ornamentation ~ Interior composition in connection with wood work . . . when properly applied will give exactly the same results as wood carving, having the same grain . . . for interior woodwork . . . windows and door trims, sideboards, consols, mantels, etc. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ From reading the material in the catalogue, it can be seen that the company’s offerings were still in the infancy of its growth and acceptance in the architectural community. These innovations that were trying to replace actual wood carvings etc were being presented as a large cost savings to other ornamentation of the day . . . BUT while still having an authentic real expert look . . . I show you the full text of this page about their offerings further below because it is so interesting. There is not much text or descriptive material – mostly just page after page of the designs to select! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ OK . . . that is the overview! I will now let the pictures speak for themselves – I am showing a LOT of the designs so you can get a good feel for this treasure! ~ I start off taking pics of designs I like and I go from there! A wonderful rare addition to your collection! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ************************************** Book Details & Condition DETAILS: Original Softcover Catalog published by Frederick’s of Hollywood in 1960, Vol 16, Issue 52, 8 1/4” x 10 1/2”, 40 pgs.
