This console, a rare owl subject by the artist, was acquired by the present family from Strawbridge’s and Clothier, a historic retail store in the heart of Philadelphia. Founded in 1892, Strawbridge’s became a local institution that offered the most fashionable designs to Philadelphia shoppers. Its flagship location, opened in 1931, offered a luxurious retail experience within an ornate Beaux Arts architectural masterpiece. The original owner of the console, an employee at Strawbridge’s for decades, helped create the lavish window designs that delighted shoppers along Market Street.
