Abstract:

Documents the furnishing and interior decoration of Henry Clay Frick's New York residence, located at One East 70th Street. Correspondence, telegrams, handwritten notes, invoices, and lists of estimates detail the selection and purchase of furniture, lighting fixtures, draperies, rugs, wall coverings and other decorative accessories for the house. Correspondents include Henry Clay Frick, Charles Allom, E.R. Bacon, Alfred Anson, Thomas Hastings, E.T. Stotesbury and Frank Partridge. The majority of the files pertain to White, Allom & Co., the firm responsible for decorating and furnishing the first floor of the residence, as well as the Breakfast Room and Mr. Frick's Sitting Room on the second floor. E.R. Bacon and Alfred Anson correspondence concerns the purchase of a suite of Beauvais tapestry furniture from the Duke of Devonshire. Also of note is a three-page Edward F. Caldwell & Co. list of lighting fixtures, containing 31 small pencil drawings of the fixtures. This collection represents only a portion of the material related to the furnishings and interior decoration of the Frick residence; the bulk of these papers are in the One East 70th Street Papers, also located in The Frick Collection/Frick Art Reference Library Archives.
