[ Paris: Ernest Dieutegard, [later] Dieutegard & Doizey, Succrs, ca. 1895-1900.]. Embroidered and woven trimmings like those shown in the present album were in high demand at the end of the nineteenth century due to the rapidly expanding French fashion market and the growing relevance of French fashion in the global industry. Trimmings were added to cuffs, seams, linens, and furnishings, and layered on stylish dresses and waistcoats. With over a hundred lavish original designs for textile trimmings, most in color gouache and some in pencil and color ink. Many of the designs are ornately floral or paisley, while others feature geometric designs reminiscent of Art Deco. Some offsetting to blank versos from designs. Laid in is an engraved Dieutegard letterhead invoice to Madam Maria Vieume a Gordon (May 29, 1900), with ink stamp of Dieutegard & Doizey. A very good, bright, and fresh item. Contemporary quarter brown leather over burgundy pebbled cloth with gilt armorial stamp and initials “ED.” Spine with raised bands. Minor wear to binding. Blue-green marbled endpapers. Quarto.

Ernest Dieutegard (1832 – 1899) and his brother Emile inherited the family trimmings business from their father, Pascal Dieutegard, and went on to win the gold medal for their designs at the 1878 Paris Exposition Universelle. Ernest became a member and judge for the committee at the Exposition Universelle in 1889. The firm was also known for using workshops such as that run by Sister Melanie of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul in Vitre.
