Item details

Hard-to-find, rare 1940s gift box from Young Quinlan Department Store in Minneapolis, MN.
Elegant black cardboard box with black and white striped sides.
The pièce de résistance is the fabulous Art Deco Armand Albert Rateau design die-cut/litho on lid.
12" x 7" x 1"
Other boxes NOT INCLUDED.

Very good condition for age and material. I am imagining something special was gifted in this box for the recipient to keep it so well taken care of all these years! I have included photos of all the corners - they are intact with minor wear. Sides of box lid is bowed out a little and top is ever-so-slightly crushed. Minor spotting on litho, top of her head is just starting to peel. Interior clean.

About Young-Quinlan (courtesy of Hennipen County Library)-
- Elizabeth C. Quinlan (1863-1947) and her business partner, Fred D. Young, opened the first women’s ready-to-wear clothing shop in Minneapolis in 1894. Prior to the shop’s opening, most Minneapolis women either sewed their clothing at home or hired a dressmaker. The store began as the Fred D. Young Company at 513 Nicollet Mall in the back of the Vrooman Glove Shop.
- By 1899, the name was changed to Young-Quinlan and the business occupied the entire store. In 1905, the store expanded again and was hailed by the Minneapolis Journal (4/1/1905) as a “signpost whereon one may read the leap Minneapolis has made from provincialism to cosmopolitanism in the last ten years.”
- When Fred Young died in 1911, Elizabeth Quinlan purchased his share of stock and became the sole owner. Within a decade, Young-Quinlan was a multimillion dollar business. In 1926 at age 63, Quinlan built the elegant Young-Quinlan store at 901 Nicollet Mall. The store’s design influenced many other retailers including Neiman Marcus. Young-Quinlan’s merchandise was beautiful and distinctive, with items ranging from 25-cent handkerchiefs to $125 “glorious shawls of metal cloth in evening shades.”
- Named by Fortune magazine as one of the nations’ top businesswomen in the 1930s, Quinlan ran the store until 1945, when the business was sold. She died in 1947 at the age of 84 and left her assets to her private foundation.
- The Young-Quinlan store opened in Minneapolis in 1926. The store’s design was an elegant example of Renaissance Revival and the store’s merchandise was beautiful and distinctive. In 1949, the Young Quinlan Company was purchased by Maurice L. Rothschild and Co. The Young-Quinlan Rothschild store closed in 1985 and the building was renovated for multiple tenants. In 1988, the building received Historic Preservation status.
