Scalamandré online auction offers archival fabrics

New York – Luxury fabric and wall covering supplier Scalamandré will offer archival fabrics and artifacts in its first-ever online auction, to run April 19-27; items can be previewed at www.lldspecialtysales.com.

The items will be drawn from the archives of the Scalamandré Textile Museum and will include custom designed silk, inspirational art work, historical fabrics from the world's most famous restoration projects and other pieces.

Highlights include several White House fabric lots including two shuttle looms, silk lampas samples that are the original working samples for chairs in the Blue Room, and which were designed by Adriana Scalamandré Bitter for Jacqueline Kennedy's White House restoration initiative that later became a landmark television special.

LLD Specialty Sales of Portsmouth, R.I., is conducting the online auction. All the items are authenticated and vetted by Robert Bitter, president of Scalamandré. Two additional auctions are planned, for August and early fall.
