Petticoat of glazed chintz with a deep decorative border at the bottom in blue, violet, and shades of red on a white ground. The design is arranged to fit the bottom of the petticoat, and consists of a series of pointed arches made up of floral bands, rising to sharply pointed ovals of blossoms. Between points of arches appear jars of flowers. The arched spaces frame, alternately, clusters of various blooms, or crossed, sharply pointed curved flower bands.The bottom of the skirt is finished by a border 5 3/4 inches wide of small arches, reversed top and bottom, in blues, with red flowers on dotted red ground; intersected by a red band with floral decoration in blue or reserved in white.The painting of the arches is elaborate and a feathery effect is produced by a background of minute foliage forms in red, or dotted grounds of red, or feathery detail in black.
In the open space above the border are detached sprays of natural size flowers, including tulips and roses.
Lined with stiff white linen; one seam. At top set into waistband of green twill tape with tie cords at the side.
The fabric was made in India, the petticoat was made in Europe, probably in The Netherlands.

Biography Note:
Jacques Seligmann & Co. were international art galleries in New York City and Paris, France. Founded in 1880 in Paris, France and closed in 1978. The company's clients included most of the major American and European art collectors of the era, and the art that passed through its galleries often ended up in the collection of prominent American and European museums. Established as Jacques Seligmann & Cie in 1880 on the Rue des Mathurins, Paris. As American clients increased, the firm opened a New York office in 1904. In 1920, Seligmann's son Germain Seligman (who dropped the last 'n' from his name), a writer and scholar, became a partner and appointed president of the New York office. Jacques Seligmann died in 1923, and in 1924, Germain became president of both the New York and Paris offices. In 1937, the company headquarters moved from Paris to New York. The firm was active in antiquities, decorative arts, Renaissance art, and was among the first to foster contemporary European art, primarily through its subsidiary firm De Hauke & Co. (later Modern Paintings, Inc.), managed by César Mange de Hauke. In 1935, its Contemporary American Department was established, headed by longtime gallery employee Theresa D. Parker. During the years following WWII, the firm was involved in the recovery of looted artwork and property, and the sale of several significant collections. The firm ceased operations upon the death of Germain Seligman in 1978.
Provenance:
Donated 1978-1979 by Mrs. Germain Seligman, daughter-in-law of Jacques Seligmann. Additional material was acquired in 1994 through the Estate of Mrs. Seligman. The Paris archives of Jacques Seligmann & Co., Inc., were destroyed by the Seligmann staff in 1940 to prevent them from falling into the hands of the Nazis.
Digitization Note:
This site provides access to the records of Jacques Seligmann & Co. in the Archives of American Art, which were were digitized in 2010. The bulk of the collection has been scanned, and totals 330,752 images.
