Casa de Miel (Palm Beach, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Palm Beach County -- Palm Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Casa de Miel was built in Mediterranean Revival style in 1927 by architect John L. Volk, with revisions and new landscaping by the current owners. The two-thirds acre property includes a swimming pool and two pavilions, an orchid house, furnished loggia, guest house, formal patio and putting green which replaced the original tennis court. The design of the plantings and placement of outdoor furnishings and planted containers are mostly symmetrical. Two original wall fountains on the house now are used as containers for flowers. Container plantings are featured throughout the property to soften the predominant hardscape. Tall hedges have been grown for privacy and as shields against sea salt and winds. Sculptures also are featured, including one by Fernando Botero at the entry and another by Barry Flanagan set among palm trees. The plant selection is appropriate for the tropical climate, including palms, bougainvillea, hedges of confederate jasmine, ficus and podocarpus, agave, and tropical annuals.
Persons associated with the property include: Frank Craig (former owner 1927-1933); R. T. Rich (former owner, 1933-1955); Cornelius Walsh (former owner, 1955-1997); John L. Volk (1901-1984) (original architect, 1927); Jeffrey W. Smith (architect, 1998-2001); Mario Nievera (landscape architect, 1998-2001); Fernando Silva (gardener, 2001-present); Barry Flanagan (1941-2009) (sculptor); Fernando Botero (sculptor).

Date:

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Curtains forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This material consists primarily of scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, circulars, receipts, memorandums, pamphlets, and import/export documents with very little visual imagery. There is not a substantial number of items for any company. Most of these curtains were made for the home, however, there are a few manufacturers of curtains and shades for railroad cars and street cars. Most of this material is undated, but appears to be late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Dated materials range from 1855-1924.

For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969.

Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Furniture and Furnishings forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This material consists primarily of scattered correspondence on letterhead stationery, printed advertisements, bills/receipts, advertising cards, illustrated catalogues, price lists, photographs, sales notices, auction notices, import/export documents, patents, business cards, lithographs and fabric samples. Most of these materials are from manufacturers and dealers, however, there are a number of references to interior decorators, upholsters, auctioneers, repairers, varnishers, polishers and furniture associations. Second hand furniture, antiques, and reproductions were available from a number of these companies. A large majority of these Companies offered furniture for the home. There are also some companies which sold furniture and furnishings for business, school, hospital, library, railroad, ship, hotel, hall, opera, invalid and outdoor use.

The types of furnishings available are varied and include carpets, nursery accessories, fireplace mantels, picture frames, mirrors, mattresses, table covers, upholstery, looking glasses, wallpaper, curtains, caskets, stoves, clocks, art, pianos and lamp fixtures, waste baskets, wash stands and wood ornaments.

Among the publications are a number of trade catalogues. Profusely illustrated, these catalogues supply the type of information that is hard to find anywhere else. Such information includes dimensions, prices, type of wood, usefulness of a particular piece and credit terms for payment. There are also a number of articles, periodicals and books. Most of these discuss a particular style of furniture, a particular piece of furniture or interior decoration.

The material is organized by name of company. There are a number of folders arranged by type including images, patents, trademarks, instructions for fitting slip covers, upholstery samples, labels, and legal documents and import/export documents.

Provenance:
Furniture and Furnishings is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.

Biographical / Historical:
Armstrong Manual Training School, built in 1902, was authorized by congress as a vocational high school for African American youth in Washington, DC. The school was named for Samuel C. Armstrong (1839-1893), a white commander of an African American Civil War regiment and founder of Hampton Institute, now University. Designed by local architect Waddy B. Wood, the Renaissance Revival building provided carpentry, machine, foundry, and blacksmith workshops. In addition, the school taught chemistry and physics. Dr. Wilson Bruce Evans, the father of performing artist Lillian Evans Tibbs, served as founding principal. Duke Ellington, William "Billy"Eckstein, and John Malachi are among a host of Armstrong graduates who became prominent in their profession. In 1996 the school was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in the District of Columbia.
