I believe my little gal is by the former Moreau - early to mid 20's, if I remember right. I got her at an auction a long time ago.

The Chiparus "fake" is period, but is Bakelite, not cold painted bronze as the originals are. And nowadays the real ones go SO HIGH! I would never be able to own one of those, except for a "dumb luck" situation! LOL

I did actually find a REAL "Dali" signed print. Ca. 1940. It's a small one, I gave to my son who adores many "modernist" genre painters/artists. It was in a "box lot" at an auction! ROFL!

One never knows what we might find around the next corner! That's half the fun of it, I think anyways! :)

Beautiful pieces Colin! and WTG on your sales! Though I'm not surprised! I'm sure any Art Deco lover would put your items on their "must have" list!

I really like the lady and roe deer, it's so pretty! I have one small Art deco lady by Moroe (spelling) French art deco bronze artist.

I also have a "faux" Chiparus, that is actually a lamp. I forgot all about till I just saw your pieces. This lamp one I have is on my vanity, I guess I never thought to take pics. Will put it on my "to do" list for the weekend. She's very cute, though the glass ball, is not original on her.

Yes Craig, that sure sounds like a scientific process doesn't it! LOL Vicki, I'm not familiar with powdercote. I guess I should stop 'lurking in the bushes' and post more, as everyone forgets my name...  :O(   LOL  Back to the glassware...It sure is a lovely set! Dianne...aren't you glad you posted it so we could talk about refinishing clamps, rechroming, and antique cars? LOL  I am curious as to the price of the decanter and glasses. Was it very expensive? It seems lately at the local estate sales, that sometimes the estate sale people are pricing some things half, or more, of what you can sell the item for online. One time I bought a pair of 1930s crystal candlesticks the second day of the estate sale for half price of $50.00, and I found that the average price online was $100.00. The first day of the estate sale they had them priced at online selling price!!! You really have to know your item and the market now! And that's why I was wondering if this glassware was the Art Deco period, or produced later. Take care, Diane  :O)

LOL Craig - Yes we also have powdercote - isnt' that a bit better now? I don't know much about it, but seems unlikely that would have been done then, sounds like it might cost more that a piece is worth?

So, it's either "new" or vintage and "like new" - very possible right! 

@Luv - I do think it's bakelite -  was hoping Dianne could tell us if she was able to check it out - she would know for sure, I think?

luv2luvantiques, re chroming things is a nasty deal, got to remove all previous chrome, polish the pc to mirror quality, then plate it with copper, then chrome, lots of nasty chemicals, to dispose of when used up.

we have a bumper factory within an hour or so of our place and that is what the antique car guys do with bumpers, sure vicki has one or 2 over by here in Big Detroit.

Hi Vicki! The knob does look like bakelite, doesn't it? Is 'finial' the term for it? I've heard it used for lamps. I learn something new everyday! You don't see me commenting as much as other people, as you for example, as I'm usually reading...lurking in the bushes! LOL I read alot of the discussions posted here. And when I saw Art Deco group...I had to join! Do you think that in the major cities, there are probably more places to rechrome things? Maybe in a machine shop to do with automotive? I had a machine shop in my home town, machine 'threads' onto the ends of two long steel rods, so I could screw on large clamps at each end. We used these for refinishing antique furniture. :O)
