Deco Delights



We've had some rather serious Art Deco glassware hit the shop in the last few weeks. Whether Art Deco is 'your thing' or not, I'm sure you can appreciate the sheer beauty of these rare and exquisite pieces.


Imagine sipping your schnapps (or is it Baileys you prefer?) on a cold winter night from these hand-cut Czech crystal liquers...I think they'd make everything taste better!


This French vaseline glass vase by Julien unfortunately doesn't photograph too well, in person this is stunning, especially when the light catches it through the window.

Better known in the perfume bottles, this black and white acid-etched Czech crystal was also made in decanter and glass sets...





...and trinket boxes. Again these are much nicer than they look here, the light-filled mirrored cabinet they live in can only do them justice in person.




Search ebay (even internationally) and you'll be flat out finding a single one of these pieces.


There's more than I can show here....A lady in the shop today actually insisted that they must all be reproductions (!), simply because we have so many. But I beg to differ, they all came from one collector who is a friend of Sues.



Am I turning you into an Art Deco collector yet??

I love art deco and I love these beautifull pieces. They would look so good on my liquer-cabinet. :) I wished your shop was a bit closer to where I live.

The penultimate one's my favourite, I'd fill it with bubble bath and keep it next to the bath.
All my Czech friends are obsessed with glassware, it must be in their blood. x

I love all the different shapes they make these glasses into, they all look so interesting and quirky. Nothing beats glassware with personality. I love these kinds of posts and thanks for the lovely comment - university will be exciting! xxx

I have only come to appreciate deco in the last few years! I was more into Art Nouveau,as I liked the flowing lines ,whereas deco is more sharp....but now I love them equally! I wouldn't collect it unless I could afford to go all out,though,and had one of those fab flat roofed deco houses!
