Catalogue des Objets d'Art et de Riche Ameublement...M.A. Beurdeley
Galerie Georges Petit [M.A. Beurdeley sale 1895]

Galerie Georges Petit, Paris. Catalogue des Objets d'Art et de Riche Ameublement executes dans les ateliers et sous la direction de M.A. Beurdeley. 1895. 56p (365 items), many photos (phototypie by Berthaud). Fair paperbound: covers faded, rather chipped; scattered foxing throughout. Sewn binding generally sound. ** In 1895 Beurdeley retired from his distinguished career of making and selling luxury reproductions of furniture and decorative arts in order to devote himself to collecting. This auction (the first of four held over several years) began to disperse the contents of his atelier, Pavillon de Hanovre. Porcelains, clocks, candelabras, lamps, andirons, vases, tables, desks, chairs, wardrobes, etc., made in bronze, marble, wood, porphyry, etc. Many in the style of Louis XV and Louis XVI. The photos are quite sharp, though most pieces aren't illustrated. (Item ID: 1005944)
