About This Item

Venice, Italy: Francesco Brunello , 1925. This is an about very good hardcover copy of a scarce trade catalog from the Venetian retailer, Francesco Brunello. The brown cloth leatherette covers are held together by cord. The back cover is mostly missing. The front cover has the company name and title in gilt script. Clean inside and out. Inside are 29 original photographs mounted to gray card stock leaves. All photographs bear a handstamp, either to the photograph or the margin of the leaf, with Francesco Brunello's name and adress in Venice. The first two photographs are different views of Brunello's showroom. The rest of the photographs are of individual pieces of furniture, in older Italian styles, very ornate, with elaborate veneer work and gilt mounts. Most photographs also have a tipped-on label of typed, or occasionally hand-written paper giving the model number and describing the piece, its' general style and materials. Most photographs with photographer information stamped on the back, also hand-written notes in Italian. No date on the catalog, but several photographs show electrical cords typical of the 1920's and 30's. Also the first two photographs show the sign in the showroom with Brunello's five digit telephone number. Large oblong folio, 10" high X 14" wide. This book will be securely wrapped and packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
