Footnotes

  • Tiffany Studios, so celebrated for their glass and Ecclesiastical creations was by 1926 losing their immense popularity that had begun more than 30 years before. To these more well-known endeavors, Louis Tiffany had added complete interior decorating services and furniture, drawing on his prior decorating experience with Tiffany & Wheeler, Tiffany & de Forest and Louis C. Tiffany & Co., Associated Artists. They produced a line of furniture ranging from modern designs by Louis Tiffany, Samuel Coleman and others to reproductions of Queen Anne, Gothic, and Baroque Royal Venetian.

    According to the accompanying documentation, dated April 6, 1926, this remarkable bedroom suite was contracted by Mrs. C.M. Hamilton of Ripley, New York from Tiffany Studios. As stated in the contract, the suite is to be elaborately carved and decorated in the manner of the antique Venetian Bed Chambers. Upon the death of Mrs. Hamilton, the suite was auctioned in 1945 by O. Rundle Gilbert auctioneers of New York, and resided with the buyer's family for the last 54 years.
