Drawing Room Window Valances

Drawing Room Window Valances

Drawing Room Window Valances

Hyde Hall, Springfield, New York

Supplied by Pierre L. Morange

Albany, New York

Pierre L. Morange of Albany, New York was hired to design and hang curtains in the drawing and dining rooms at Hyde Hall. He also supplied the gilded valances for both rooms. As Morange was an upholsterer, the valance may have been made by Lawton Annesley (1795-1865) a well-known dealer in picture frames and mirrors in Albany, New York. This set, a pair of tripartite windows in the drawing room, utilizes Greek anthemion, volutes, and acanthus leaf decoration which was in keeping with Grecian furniture acquired at the same time.
