His Master's Voice Dog on Art Deco Poster

I adore this large advertising poster for early 33rpm records. It combines my love of music with Art Deco poster design.

I bought it in Chicago in 1999-2000 and it has been on my study wall ever since.

Reminds me of my childhood!
by: Jenny from Dorset

This reminds me of when I had my first ever record player, in a little suitase. The records were bigger than the turntable, and you could play three different speeds. It was fun if you got the speed of the record wrong and the music sounded like the voices off Pinky and Perky!

Art Deco Kneeling Nudes Lamp

by Dave
(Sheridan, Wyoming)


I bought this lamp on Ebay a few years ago. It's a very nice bronze tone with a blue bubble boudoir glass shade. The cord has been replaced with a new period style cord. Looks to be made of some sort of cast metal. I don't see a maker stamped on this piece. I'm seeking information about this.

The Shade
by: Anonymous

Thank you Lesley! I do have a frosted glass shade that came with the lamp. It was broken and has a repair. I'm not sure if it is the original. I like the blue shade to give it some color. Dave

A lovely Art Deco lamp indeed!
by: Anonymous

Thank you for showing us your lamp Dave. There were many, many nude lady lamps made in the Art Deco period, particularly in the 1930s often with circular globe shaped glass shades.

There must have been hundreds of different factories who made them. Without being able to see it in the flesh, it's hard to tell, but I would imagine it is spelter. I haven't seen one with that kind of shade before, and I wonder whether it is actually the original shade.

If any other readers have seen similar lamps or know anything more about this design, we'd be pleased to find out.

If you want to find out more, it's often a good idea to ask your local auction house or antique dealer for information and a valuation.

All the best
Lesley from Decolish.

The Family Toaster

Art Deco ToastMaster

Art Deco ToastMaster

Back in'76 my in-laws bought a new toaster for the family cabin. When I asked them why on earth they would get rid of the beautiful toaster we already had that worked beautifully, they said it was "Old". I brought it home and used it to make perfect toast for another ten years before one of the heating elements went out. I set it aside to fix and never got around to it.

Visiting your site reminded me of my beloved ToastMaster. Knowing exactly what box it was in, I just pulled it out, dusted it off and took its picture to share with you. Now if I just knew how to fix that heating element!

Art Deco Toasters are great
by: Lesley

I used to have quite a collection of Art Deco toasters, but they were quite different from yours. They were the flip open style. Each side opened up with a hinge on the bottom, you put the toast in and pressed a lever and the sides popped up again. You'd have to open it up and turn the toast over which would burn your fingers rather. They were attractive, but not as stylish as the moulding on yours. Stupidly I sold them in auction, as I needed the space, and I hardly got anything for them.

I've seen others in some really nice designs, with green enamel work, or even bakelite on them. Some are becoming big collectors items these days, especially if they have a very deco look, and an interesting mechanism.

Chrome covered art deco teapot

by Diana Coster

Art Deco Chrome Teapot

Art Deco Chrome Teapot

Hi I have an almost exact teapot that is in your photo - the one with the chrome cover... I am in New Zealand and I inherited it from my Grandmother who collected antiques. I have listed it on Trademe.co.nz under art deco teapot listing. I don't want to undersell it. Could you please tell me what I should ask for it please? It is in excellent condition apart from the tea strainer insert which has a crack in it.
Please advise me.
Thank you
Diana

Value of Art Deco teapot
by: Lesley

Hi Diana
Thanks for your question about your teapot. The cover on those types of teapots is chrome plated. This was very typical in the Art Deco period.

I don't really know NZ prices, but in Australia those teapots can fetch anything from $25 up to about $75.

I had a look on the NZ website where you have posted yours. I notice that you haven't got a gallery picture. (assuming I'm looking at the right one!) In my opinion, its essential to use one if you want to get the best price.

Good luck and I hope it sells well.
