Built between 1887 and 1888 for GW Morgan, the house was sold numerous times and moved twice before coming to the museum.
Originally located at 4501 North Pasadena Ave (now Figueroa St), it was purchased by James and Bessie Hale in 1906 at it’s 2nd location, 4425 N. Pasadena Ave. James was a motor man for the railroad. The couple separated a few years after moving in-Bessie remained in the house and took in boarders and bought and sold real estate in the hot property market of the early 20th century in Los Angeles. Moved to the museum in 1970, the house underwent a large restoration effort. It is a classic example of a Queen Anne/Eastlake style house. Queen Anne details include fish scale shingles, corner turret, iron grillwork and dentil blocks.
Charles Locke Eastlake was a renowned interior designer of the period. The Hale House’s extensive surface decorations, including chrysanthemums, fans, and geometric designs can be found in Eastlake’s book, Hints on Household Taste. Unfortunately for Eastlake, many of the designs that he abhorred were adopted by the homeowners and furniture makers alike who copied all of the designs in his book-the good and bad-and dubbed the ‘Eastlake’.
The exterior colors – four shades of green, three red, with yellow and Victorian black trim – were reproduced from pain uncovered during restoration. Lincrusta, a wall covering made to look like leather, decorates the downstairs rooms and is original to the building, as are the light fixtures, fireplaces, and some of the furniture. The upstairs bathroom contains original bathroom fixtures, including nickel-plated bathtub, ceramic sink and a pull-chain toilet.
UK - London - St. James's: Christie's
Christie's, the world's oldest fine art auctioneer, has sold fine art, furniture, jewelry and wine since James Christie conducted the first sale in London on 5 December 1766. Since then Christie's has continued to provide the perfect backdrop for the world's finest collections and greatest works of art before their auction. Christie's moved to its headquarters at 8 King Street, St. James's, in 1823, still its London headquarters today.
Many major international auctions have been conducted in the famous Great Room at Christie's King Street during the firm's illustrious history. Recent sales have included the Collection of the Barons Nathaniel and Albert von Rothschild, which set a world auction record of $90 million for any European single-owner sale.
In addition to its King Street headquarters, a second London Sales room opened in 1975 in South Kensington. There are additional showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam, Rome, Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Bangkok.
