Art Deco Coasters set of 4 wooden, cork backed, coasters, Deco Diva, handmade
Our Deco Divas Coasters set is a stunning set of 4 wooden, cork backed, coasters with Art Deco, vintage, images from the 1920s.
The mixed set comprises 4 images of silent film actresses and all featured on magazine covers in the 1920s. The designs will appeal to those who love the glamour and style of the Art Deco era, film buffs and anyone who loves vintage and retro images. We think lovers of kitsch, mid century art by Vladmir Tretchikoff and J H Lynch might enjoy these designs too. Pin-up style images were used in the 1920s and artists such as Rolf Armstrong, Clive Henry, Marland Stone, Charles Gates Sheldon and many others created some iconic designs. Many of these portraits were for magazine covers, particularly film magazines, which were hugely popular at the time, featuring the glamorous IT girls of the day. We searched through hundreds of vintage images before choosing this striking, colourful and stylish group of 4 Deco Divas. Designer, William Morris, had it right when he said “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” We think these coasters qualify on both counts.
The images from top left to right feature:
Image 1 - Gloria Swanson by Marland Stone
Image 2 - Pola Negri by Marland Stone
Image 3 - Mary Thurman by Rolf Armstrong
Image 4 - Aileen Pringle by Charles Gates Sheldon
Each coaster has rounded edges and measures 10 cms x 10 cms. The handmade coasters are made in the UK with Birch plywood, are FSC certified and we have added a cork backing. The images have a matt, protective, coating which enhances the vintage look. They do not have a glossy finish.
Please note that these coasters are not dishwasher safe. To clean, wipe over with a soft, damp cloth. Please do not place teapots or cafetieres directly onto the coasters.
