Antique Collector - Art Deco


The powerful geometry and inspiration known as Art Deco.
Art Deco is the term given to the richly-coloured and decorative styles associated with the 1920's and 30's which grew from roots firmly anchored in Art Nouveau. Shunned for many years by collectors, Art Deco is now more popular than ever and this is reflected in higher prices, especially for work that now looks particularly inspired.

Art Deco grew from the general optimism that prevailed after the destruction and carnage of WW1. Bright, dramatic and colourful, the designers of the day used the new fashions and public interest in speed, travel, films, dance and jazz music to bring to the people something new and exciting. The human form became an object of celebration, evidenced by the bronze, ivory and glass ornaments that depicted athleticism and competition.

British Art Deco ceramics are epitomized by Clarice Cliff, later by Susie Cooper and the big potteries of Wedgewood and Doulton.
