Between World War I and World War II, an amazing style emerged in the arts called Art Deco and the sleek style of this era has never lost its devotees. Collectors recognized its striking beauty as soon as it appeared on the market and Art Deco collectibles continue to win new admirers every day. The end of prohibition brought up a bunch of bar related Art Deco styled items because one could now legally drink at home. The barware of the Art Deco period is as fashionable now as it ever was — that’s an incredible track record. Modern designers of barware draw inspiration from Art Deco, and vintage Art Deco everything commands the rapt attention of collectors around the world. We rounded up some of our top picks of Art Deco barware on Ruby Lane. Cheers!
