Series 6: Inventory and Stock Files, 1923-1971, undated
4.5 linear feet
Boxes 279-289

This series includes bound and loose stock and inventory catalogs and lists prepared by the New York and Paris offices. Inventory catalogs are arranged by location, inventory number, genre, and ownership for stock in New York and Paris. Although many of the catalogs are complete and in numbered order, others appear to be missing inventory numbers. It was quite common for the firm to remove part of an inventory catalog when an item had been sold and file the sheet in other files in the firm's records. Some of the inventory number sequences overlap due to copies of listings being filed in more than one place. Also found are miscellaneous inventory lists as well as an inventory of the firms photographic negative file of works of art.
This series is organized into four subseries. This series has been scanned in entirety, with the exception of 6.4: Negative files.
