Overview


Through the peak period of Art Deco creativity in the 1920s, many artists and studios produced portfolios of original designs for commercial use. Often these original works went unsigned and, after inspiring their limited, exclusive audience, disappeared. Here is one such portfolio (most likely French or German, 1925‒30) recently rediscovered and now reproduced as an original and probably unique document of the Art Deco years.
Over 800 royalty-free jewelry designs and motifs dazzle with Art Deco invention: buckles, buttons, clips, belts, mirrors, pendants, cigarette cases, rings, chains, necklaces, watchbands, brooches, studs, clusters of intricate, delicate, sharp-edged Art Deco charms, many graced with the too-often forgotten humor and wit lying just beneath the geometry.
Jewelry designers, collectors of Art Deco, and period specialists will find equal amounts of inspiration and aesthetic delight in this rare, precisely executed collection of fresh, authentic Art Deco design, now rescued from oblivion. Artists, designers, and crafters will find it a valuable Art Deco treasury.
