At the time Europe was recovering from war and therefore designs were made in cheaper materials such as Bakelite, an early plastic, which opened up new possibilities when it came to colour and shape. But art deco was not just something made more affordable through machine production, as it also offered exclusive handcrafted art.
Art deco is inspired by geometric shapes, bright colours, modern materials, nature motifs; archaeological discoveries also drew an interest towards early Egypt and Meso-America.
At Alfies you can find a comprehensive collection of items and collectables signed just that; art deco.
