Art Deco Antiques & Vintage Items
During the 1920’s and into the 1930’s, Art Deco was the trend in art and architecture. Incorporating streamlined style, far different from the Victorian period, Art Deco celebrated a time known as the modern Jazz Age, including flappers, automobiles, and the sense of freedom that emerged after World War 1. The period known as Art Deco was an exciting time of prosperity in the US, and the popular culture embraced the bold geometric shapes, colors and style in building design and interior décor.
Today, Art Deco period antiques are among the most sought-after pieces of American style. Though the true period described as Art Deco in the US spans the 1920’s and early 1930’s, there was a resurgence in the 1960’s which has been described as Art Deco, but is actually 1960’s vintage.
