NOTES The Weil-Worgelt apartment at 525 Park Avenue was the home of Milton Weil, one of the founders of the Gotham Silk Hosiery Company, and his wife, Ethel Weil. After Mr. Weil’s death in 1934, Mrs. Weil married Raymond Worgelt, who donated the study of the apartment to the Brooklyn Museum in 1970. The apartment was decorated between 1928 and 1930 by Martin Becker of the French firm Alavoine. The study was decorated in an Art Deco fashion, while the rest of the apartment was furnished in a French eighteenth-century revival style.
