Series 6: Inventory Records, 1881-1969, bulk 1900s-1940s
(Boxes 69-70, BV113-128; 2.3 linear feet)

Inventory records provide another access point in which to research the provenance of artwork held by Doll & Richards. There are seven volumes of ledgers which record details of artwork on hand at Doll & Richards from 1881-1969. Also found are inventory books for prints and frames, including a frame profile book that shows cross-sections of frame moldings and an index to frame manufacturers.
Entries in the records of works on hand typically include the artist's name, title of work, description, cost, date received, remarks, owner, price, and disposition. Each volume contains separate indices for artists and for owners. Identification numbers are assigned to each entry. Each volume has been assigned specific page numbers (eg. 1-100, 101-200, etc.) and each page has 20 entries, one for each piece of artwork. Thus an entry on line 15 of page 207 is given the identification number 207/15. Beginning with the third volume which starts in 1895, entries of unsold works from earlier volumes were transferred to unnumbered pages at the front of later volumes.
Folders are arranged alphabetically by subject, then chronologically.
