Vintage Gifts for Art Deco Lovers



If you or a friend adore the 1920/30s/40s Art Deco style, then yay retro! may well have some lovely gift-worthy items you will want to take a good look at.

Art Deco came to the fore just after the First World War and influenced Art, Architecture, Textile Design and Ceramics etc. It really took off in the 1920s, 30s and 40s, marrying traditional craft techniques with forward thinking designs featuring bold bright colours, symmetrical geometric patterns and lots of detailed ornamentation.

Art Deco is thought of as a 'modern' style which more than nodded it's head towards the thrust of industrial modernisation. Indeed the designers reacted to the needs of mass production, when creating their works. During its heyday, Art Deco represented technological progress, glitz and glamour. 

Take a look at some of the Art Deco tablewares yay retro! have in stock here, including Woodsware, Grindley & Midwinter.
