Date:
1855-1924
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.
Arrangement:
Arranged in two subseries. Subseries one is arranged alphabetically by name of manufacturer or retailer.

Subseries 1: Companies

Subseries 2: Miscellaneous Materials

Provenance:
Curtains 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.

Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.

Collection items available for reproduction, but the Archives Center makes no guarantees concerning copyright restrictions. Other intellectual property rights may apply. Archives Center cost-recovery and use fees may apply when requesting reproductions.
