Its purpose is to explain how you can display and group items from your collection to their maximum visual advantage regardless of whether that collection is large or small. Groupings by manufacturer, material, color, or function are all illustrated with over 120 stunning full color photographs, each with an accompanying diagram to explain the techniques used in their composition. In addition, over 1000 individual pieces shown are fully described and their values given in an accompanying price guide. These include furniture, lighting, pottery, glass, and a wide variety of decorative accessories that bring the Art Deco decor to life. In the second half of the book you will go behind the closed doors of the homes of private collectors and have a unique opportunity to see how these techniques have been employed to incorporate Art Deco and 20th Century items into the interiors of today.
