Lot Essay

The Maison Carlhian was founded in Paris in January 1867 by Anatole Carlhian (d.1904) and Albert Dujardin-Beaumetz (d.1906). Initially established in the rue Beaurepaire, in 1906 the sons of Anatole Carlhian, Paul and André, inherited the business and they subsequently moved it to 24 rue du Mont-Thabor. Specializing in "menuiserie, peinture et de tapisserie," the firm retailed and owned an extensive collection of period specimen chairs and furniture, and they were principally patronized by Duveen Brothers. Subsequently renamed "societé Carlhian" in 1930, the firm established a New York branch and flourished until 1975.
