A LARGE DAUM AND MAJORELLE GLASS AND WROUGHT-IRON VASE
ART DECO Regarded as a golden period between the wars, the Twenties and Thirties were imbued with a sense freedom and desire for enjoyment. The design showed clarity and a pairing away of the unnecessary clutter and embellishment that was the style a previous generation. The Paris Exhibition of 1925, (the Exposition Internationale Des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes), in retrospect, is regarded as the peak of the Art Deco movement and the zenith of it's style, but it is true to say that design had been moving in that direction long before and this Expostion would have taken place much earlier had the First World War not interceded. These works show strength and purpose, function and form unite, they are not over embellished and they appear confident and grounded in what they are and what they do. They are bold enough to take our modern living and our personal ephemera but they can also be left as a statement with no addition or adornment.
