Period passion

One of the joys of collecting vintage is that you can satisfy your passion for a particular period or style.

One of the most enduring is art deco – that time between art nouveau design and the start of austerity at the beginning of WWII.

It’s is very distinctive even to the uninitiated!  It screams the jazz age, the Charleston and flapper dresses!

Small items can still be bought relatively cheaply if you want to add some deco style to your home.  Just one vase can evoke that carefree time which had thrown off the shackles of Victorian and Edwardian convention and just before the world was plunged into war.

A short period in time but seemingly never ending in popularity.
