Scope and Contents note:
This is a very small series of records of the subsidiary Gersel Corp., which appears to have been in business from the mid-1940s through the late 1960s. The records do not provide any documentation on the establishment or liquidation of the company, but it appears that the company was established to handle the accounts of certain acquisitions and sales that Germain Seligman did not want handled by the main firm, although the firm usually took a commission for the sales. Gersel may have handled artwork acquisitions and sales for which Germain Seligman was the primary owner.
