Meet the Midcentury French Decorator Who Everyone Can't Stop Talking About

Geffroy's clients had as much swagger as the decors he devised for them. Daisy Fellowes, the Franco-American sewing-machine heiress and daring fashion plate, hired him to give her Paris mansion an impossibly lush decor grounded in Louis XV classicism.

The 1800s progression of mechanical sewing - Farm and Dairy


When I was a kid, Mom had a treadle-type sewing machine that sat in front of an east-facing window at one end of the broad upstairs hallway of our farmhouse. It was a Franklin, painted shiny black with lots of gold curlicues and nickel-plated accessories and she made many clothes for herself, my sister and my sister’s dolls. Most farm wives (and many town wives as well) during the last half of the 19th century and first half of the 20th did the same thing. Until the 19th century all clothes, hats, shoes, harness and ships sails were sewed by hand — a slow, laborious process, as attested to by Thomas Hood’s poem. Oh, inventors had tinkered with knitting and sewing machines off and on for decades, but they all tried to duplicate the motion of the human hand and none worked. Then the European wars of the 1800s, and the subsequent need for thousands of uniforms for the armies and sails for the warring navies started some movement toward mechanization. First inventors In 1830 a Frenchman, M. Thimmonier, patented a workable sewing machine and made uniforms for the French army. The Parisian tailors, following the example of the British Luddites, broke into his factory in 1841 and burned all the sewing machines — and they did it again in 1848 after he rebuilt. In this country, a New Yorker named Walter Hunt developed a machine in the 1830s that made a lock-stitch and had an eye-pointed needle. He never patented the idea however and lost out to Elias Howe as the father of the sewing machine. Howe was born in 1819 on a barren Massachusetts farm and in his teens he apprenticed in a Lowell, Massachusetts, machine shop where they made textile machinery. He later moved to Boston and worked in the shop of a scientific instrument maker, where he learned much about making intricate mechanisms. Howe’s problem was that all his needles had the eye at the center and he couldn’t make them work. It’s unknown if he had heard of Hunt, but the idea came to him, reportedly in a dream, of putting the eye at the needle’s pointed end. This solved the problem and Howe had a working sewing machine, but he couldn’t get any of the local garment makers to buy it, the tailors raised such a storm of protest. Howe finally sold a machine in England and was hired to keep it in order. While he was there other men in the U. S. took his ideas and built machines that finally caught on. Singer One of these was Isaac Merritt Singer, a flamboyant promoter who had trained as a mechanic and had also been an actor and a theatrical manager. Borrowing $40 to buy the materials, Singer built a successful machine in 1855 that featured the eye-pointed needle and lock-stitch plus improvements. He built and sold some machines in Boston before moving to New York City and starting a large sewing-machine factory. Singer widely advertised “the greatest invention of the age,” and opened lavishly decorated showrooms full of attractive young ladies operating Singer machines. A Singer machine in the hands of a trained operator could make 300 stitches per minute, while a skilled seamstress could do maybe 40 by hand. Howe’s machine was powered by turning a hand crank, while Singer introduced foot-treadle power so both hands could be used to guide the cloth. Howe returned from England and began to sue for patent infringement. His rights were finally established in the courts in 1854 and he was awarded $25 per machine built thereafter. His triumph was clouded however, due to the recent death of his wife and, although there were Howe sewing-machines made, Howe never owned a factory of his own. Womanizers Elias Howe died in Brooklyn in 1867. Although one would think Isaac Singer would be busy enough with his business interests, he was a great womanizer and had at least three wives, along with several paramours. One of the paramours, claiming common law status as Singer’s wife, had him arrested for bigamy in 1862. He got out of jail on bond and fled to England where he married a French woman, who left her husband for him. Singer lived in England until his death in 1875. Wilson Another name.

The Peddler's Occupation

The Peddler's Occupation

( (dba Shopping))

Price: $18.86

The Peddlers Exchange is a picaresque, satirical novel based on my five years in West Africa from 1955 to 1960. The central character, utterly a series of comical accidents, finds himself working for the Spillswell Flour Company while, without knowing it, carrying the credentials of a clandestine emissary of the Central Intelligence Agency. He stumbles along the West coast of Africa in the throes of becoming independent as corrupt and inefficient colonial regimes are about to be replaced by equally corrupt and incompetent African governments. Behind the sardonic humor the book dramatizes the catastrophic chaos about to envelop the region. A chaos which continues in more virulent form today. The feckless central character rides an airline as jocose as Don Quixotes Rosinante flown by a drunken, lubricious former Polish fighter pilot while falling in love with the supposed Chanteur Sewing Machine papal nuncio, Leila Defesse, who is in reality an agent of the French CIA, the Direction Generale de la Securite Exterieure. The book mirrors the satirical works of Evelyn Waugh in the nineteen thirties, Poop bail and Black Mischief in which Waugh painted a devastatingly prescient portrait of the African disaster looming over the horizon. Still the best two books in all cases written on the Dark Continent. *Author: Harper, Edward *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 192 *Semi-weekly Date: 2006/09/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.44 inches

American Firms in Europe
Published by Librairie Droz 2017
ISBN 2600012591,9782600012591
699 pages

The processes of the Americanisation of Europe and the moves of American firms abroad have been already well studied. But the very expansion of American firms in Europe still lacked a comprehensive survey. This book gathered two dozens of academics on an actual European level, which paves the way to comparisons, synthetised by leading business historian M. Wilkins. The breakthroughs achieved here concern the topics of timetable and rhythms of American FDIs in Europe, the patterns followed in each country, along with the specificities of each industry or service sector, and the strategy adopted by big firms. Beyond the facts, the immaterial aspects of this business history are scrutinised, especially about the perception of American firms by Europeans: firms' corporate image and identity...
