Art Deco collectibles

Art Deco was introduced in the 1920’s and reigned through the 1930’s, encompassing both the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression. It is an elegant style of decorative art and architecture reflective of Art Nouveau, yet with more modern sophistication. Art Deco features sleek straight lines and an element of boldness.The movement affected city styles, architecture, high fashion, jewelry, commercial printmaking, and interior design, and embraced lifestyles of hedonism, indulgence and mass consumption. 

The term "Art Deco" has its origins in the 1925 French art exposition at Le Musee des Arts Decoratifs.  The exposition was meant to be a display of nouveau design from around the world, but U.S. Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover declared Americans off limits from entering, as he felt no contemporary architecture was "new" enough.  Instead, Hoover sent experts to learn and adapt the exposition's designs to American architectural expression.  The ensemble included members of the American Institute of Architecture, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The New York Times.  Their reports along with the attendance of many American architects to the exposition address the swell of decorative treatments in American design between 1925 and 1941.
