The Retailers - The Horchow Collection

Horchow was the first free-standing luxury catalog business in the United Stated not attached to a large store. The founder, Roger Horchow, published his first catalog in 1973, after graduating from Yale and working in retail at Neiman Marcus. He sold the catalog business to Neiman Marcus in 1988 and went on to become a Tony award winning Broadway producer.

Some famous clients include the Royal Family of Monaco, several Kennedys, Liza Minnelli and Robert Redford, who once ordered a gadget to kill bugs on his ranch.

Pictured is a dog bonbonniere from an early catalog along with two catalog covers from the late 1970's.
