One usually thinks of Art Deco existing between the Wars—starting in the mid-Twenties and peaking in the Thirties. But the movement had a very long tail.

The vases above were made in the 1950's by Michael Andersen and Sons on the Danish Baltic island of Bornholm. While Modernist, they bear a strong Art Deco flavor. Crisply-cast horses frolic in a field of stylized flowers and foliage. Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
