POCHOIR

French for "Stencil", Pochoir was a popular, thought time consuming and expensive, form of reproduction during the Jazz Age that was used in high-end magazines, advertisements for luxury items, and as a means for artists like Chagall, Manet and Picasso to more precisely reproduce their art.  Pieces would sometimes require dozens and dozens of trained artists working with more than a hundred individual stencils, and pieces could also be finished with hand painted touches.  The reproductions often took more time and work than the original art piece being copied! 

Art Deco Tins

Fantastic design on everyday items.  We love how these tins can showcase the basic design elements of the Art Deco style! 

Ceramics

Though we have a variety of ceramic objects, we especially enjoy our collection of Teapots & Jugs, for we love how artists have expressed such an incredible array of creativity with these objects, sometimes to the point "impracticality" turning them into fun and fantastical works of Art Deco sculpture.
