Abstract:

The commercial fact that tapestries have immeasurably increased in value within the last five years, would have little interest were it not that this increase is the direct result of America's awakened appreciation of this form of art. It has come about in these latter days that tapestries are considered a necessity in the luxurious and elegant homes which are multiplying all over our land. And the enormous demand thus made on the supply, has sent prices for rare bits into a dizzy altitude, and has made even the less perfect pieces seem scarce and desirable. -- Foreword.
