Cocktails were incredibly popular during the Art Deco period. Mainly because during prohibition it was the best way to make alcoholic drinks taste bearable! But it was also part of the whole party experience. Cocktail shakers from the period can be very collectable now. This set is quite unusual in that it has the matching cups.
The bronze sculpture is a copy of a Chiparus. He was one of the foremost sculptors of the period and concentrated on exotic dancers in futuristic costumes. They are much copied today, but an original would set you back many thousands of dollars.
There are many more clocks to look at on my Art Deco clocks pages. They range from grand marble clocks with garnitures for stately mansions to quirky Bakelite clocks.
These are two textured glass lampshades. I use them as ornaments at the moment. Though some of my other lampshades have found homes in my new house.
On the right is a sunburst pattern on the bottom of a lovely Bakelite fruit bowl.
I saw this wonderful teapot set in an antique shop in Hobart recently. I loved it, but I didn't love the $350 price tag. But the lady who owned the shop was so kind and let me have a photo of it. So I could enjoy it, and share it with you too. Must admit, I've never seen another set like it, and so rare to find one in great condition and all complete. So it probably was worth every cent I just didn't have.
My other half had a craze for uranium depression glass for a while so we seem to have ended up with a house full of green glass vases. But it's my favourite colour so I'm not complaining!
This stylish Art Deco trio is more use for looking at than actually drinking from because of the handle. Gorgeously pointy, but hard to hold. The teapot has pride of place in my new (old) kitchen, I adore it.
