Tapestry Collection Normandy Medieval William Baumgarten & Company Herter Bros.(116 views)
Description: A collection of early 20th century tapestries. Commissioned from the firm of William Baumgarten & Company who had bought out Herter Bros. From a 1905 installation of a ‘cottage’ in Newport Rhode Island. Please refer to the white numbers on the photos: # 1: size is 12’ x 82” tall; with a little curving on one end the true squared size is 106” x 82”. # 2 is angled for a stairway: 20’ x 4.5’. # 3: a rectangular bordered panel 13’ x 87” with 2 small vertical panels app. 30” x 7’ and 30” x 8’. Condition: tacks surround the borders; splits in several areas which I believe can be mended. Very dusty and should be carefully vacuumed. These pieces were upholstered in a downstair hallway with some of the tapestry applied up a stairway. The views have a Normandy Medieval theme. Machine made: perhaps a Jacquard Loom.
