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)

I have not seen that shape or pattern in our American Glass. So, it could be European. As Luv stated the chrome lid does look a little "to new", but it could also have been restored - rechromed. The lid finial does resemble bakelite - which would indicate the 1920's-30's. ( did you get a good look at that?)

Were you able to handle the cups? The best way to tell old from new is that the new glass has a weird greesy feel to it, and the color's are usually "off". ( bases appear almost plastic) The next way to check is wear. But, if put away and unused, that wouldn't help us either.

Sorry I couldn't be more help - but it is super cool in any case!

Hello Dianne! It is a gorgeous set! It is so difficult to tell the age from a photo. It could be art deco, as it could be the rare piece that was very well cared for. It could also be from the Retro Period of the 1940s - 50s, when they made items using different styles, as the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods. The lid looks very new, though. I know in the 1950s and again in the 1970s, they copied the past so much in glassware!

I spotted this unusual Punch Bowl set today at Grass Island Market in Guilford, CT Would you say the style is Art Deco? Could anyone in this group offer some info about this set?

Thanks

Dianne

Hello all, I bought this art-deco plaque back in the early 1970s at a small junk shop in northern Iowa.  It is blue mirror and I've always thought the figure to be "celluloid" but have since figured it might be plaster.  Obviously NOT a "House of David" piece due to subject matter ;-).  Measures 16" tall by 8" wide. A piece like it was used in the set decor in the 1937 movie "Topper" (it is on the wall beside the elevator in The Kerbey's apartment building!).  Hope someone might be able to tell me WHO made it, WHEN, etc.  I'd never want to part with her, but it'd be great to know she might be worth something! Thanks!  Char

Thanks, Tom. So...actually the 1918 prints would be Art Deco (unless you are a purist :)) Here's another 1918 Vouge Poster I'm researching by Helen Dryden. Both of them were purchased in London at Conde Nast in 1973. I see the same vouge posters over and over in my online search but can't seem to find these...

Ok, thanks! Nouveau it is. :)

Wonder where that leaves that six year period between 1914 and 1920? Do you know if it has a name?
