Series 2: Sales Records and Inventories , 1911-1969, undated

Sales records consist of carbon copies of receipts, 1916-1929 (18 volumes); order forms, 1916-1968; sales registers, 1911-1931 (5 volumes); and card indices, 1918-1966 (5 files) recording paintings sold and returned, exhibited and consigned. Inventories of Milch Galleries stock, 1916-1967 (25 volumes) include some separate listings for specific categories such as prints, frames, and bronzes.
The series is organized into two subseries:
  • 2.1: Sales Records, 1911-1969, undated
  • 2.2: Inventories of Milch Gallery Stock, 1916-1967
2.1: Sales Records, 1911-1969, undated
Sales receipt and carbon copy volumes record the name and address of purchaser, description of merchandise (paintings, prints, frames) or service (framing, restoration, hanging or other labor), and price. Order forms duplicate information recorded in the sales records, but cover a longer time span and sometimes are more specific concerning titles and dimensions of works of art purchased; order numbers do not coincide with receipt numbers, and are cross referenced only in the receipt books.
