Le Pavillon de Lyon et Saint-Etienne à L’Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs, 1925. Scarce catalog from the silk pavilion of the famed Paris expo that gave the style Art Deco its name. Articles on textiles in French and English within the catalog include histories of the Lyon textile industry, the lace and ribbon industries, and the museum of textiles. Includes several full-page photos of the pavilion as well as a plan of the interior, as well as an extensive list of the exhibitors of textiles and furniture included in it. Includes many beautiful full-page color advertisements in classic Art Deco style by participating textile manufacturers, such as Bianchini-Férier, Colcombet, J. Barret, Maison Veuve Berger, Guigou Pere et Fils, Combier et Cie, J. Bessieres et Cie, Ducharnes, Henry Fontanilles, J. Grassy, and more.


Softcover, 126 pgs, measures approx. 10.8" H x 8.5" W x 0.2 D. Good condition - cover shows a fair amount of wear, with spotting, chipping to edges and bent edges, and a library tag on the spine from the first half of the 20th century. Interior, however, is fantastic, with just the occasional spot or mark and a slightly turned upper right corner. See images for reference, and feel free to email before purchasing for further information.
