After the devastation of World War I, the world was ready for a more modern style in the decorative arts. Art Deco is the umbrella term used to define the extraordinary variety of design during the interwar years ranging from the extravagance of the 1920s to the austerity of the 1930s. Explore the glass of this period – its characteristics, key glass designers, new emerging forms – with lots and lots of representative examples.
