Gallery of 1920s and 1930s Art Deco Style

Art Deco Gallery

Our Art Deco Gallery featuring examples of the diversity and quality of items produced during the art deco period.

A gallery of the ever popular art deco style. The architectural and decorative-arts style popular from 1910 to 1940, that is characterised by highly stylised and geometric forms.

Art Deco themes were often classical motifs reduced to geometric stylisations.

From Edgar Brandt decorated wrought-iron screens with symmetrical fountains and Emil Ruhlman ebony cabinets with ivory inlay depicting floral arrangements of geometrical precision.

René Lalique etched scenes, such as a graceful striding female with a wolfhound or gazelle, into crystal or frosted glass; and Jean Puiforcat and Daum depicted abstract geometric forms.
