This is an interesting study in Art Deco "Depression Green" objects, which is one of my favorite colors from the era. These mellow shades of green typify the Art Deco period. All of these objects are circa 1930's-1940's.

I recently acquired the minty green and cream enamel picture frame, and it looks great with a vintage photo of Hollywood star, Carol Lombard.

The amazing and rare "I Dream of Jeannie" thermos decanters ("Dekantor") were made by Landers, Frary, and Clark from New Britain, Connecticut. They have chrome accents with black glass stoppers. You can imagine those on a Hollywood bedside table.

The candlesticks were made by the Trenton Art Pottery Company.

The incredible streamlined, Machine Age pen holders were designed and patented in 1935 by R.R. Hutcheson (US Patent #: D96,838) and manufactured by Diecasters, NY. They are made of chrome and green enamel.

The cigarette box was manufactured by The Dura Company in Toledo, Ohio and possibly designed by industrial designer, Kurt Rettich, circa 1933 (US Patent #: D89,210). It is made of bakelite and a "Dura metal" alloy. These boxes came in a number of different colors and with several different types of animal finials, but the finial has a Machine Age design.

    Moderne Paul T Frankl who designed numerous items such as the skyscapper book cases desks, other furniture and buildings also designed a number of vanity sets featuring items such as these, great collection.
