March Faves

Mrs. A. Monthly Faves Vintage Finds

For March Faves, I decided to choose a style of art that is recognized for having a “global visual language”.  Art Deco first appeared in the 1920’s, lost its popularity after World War II, and made a comeback in the 1960’s.  You might ask what are the true characteristics of an Art Deco piece?  “In many instances, you can imagine dividing an Art Deco piece down the center and the halves will be mirror images. That is, if an item was cut cleanly down the middle, the two resulting sides would be identical….This isn’t always the case, however. Some Deco items have bold geometric shapes that define them.”

Featured this month are three vintage sellers…Deb Bibbins of CobblestonesVintage, JP of JPCountryMarket and Loretta of MoonstruckCottage.  The wonderful items listed below are just a small sampling of what their shops have to offer.  Looking for something for yourself or have a special gift to buy?  Be sure to take a moment and browse around these great Vintage Shops.

I love art deco! I am honored that you featured my shop – thank you so much.

Thanks for stopping by, Deb. I never thought I was fond of Art Deco, but I guess I just didn’t understand it. The listings above are stunning. Your shop has many more listings just as impressive.

Great information. I didn’t know that Roseville was art deco.

  • Mrs. A.March 1, 2017 at 11:24PM

I’ve seen many Roseville that are Art Deco. Isn’t this one a gorgeous vase? Thanks for commenting.

I’m definitely an art deco style fan! I like the symmetry and those bold lines. You’ve selected some great items for your article. Very nice!

I never thought about Art Deco being symmetrical, but that does seem to hold true. I love Roseville pottery, and my dad has a nice collection of it. We just have one piece (that I found in a trash pile, of all places).

That’s funny, Laura, but you know what they say about one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Thanks for commenting.
