Catalin radios, chromium cocktail shakers, mixmasters, toasters, waffle irons, Fiestaware, Depression glass and other manufactured objects have exploded into the arena of high-end collectibles. Indeed, these increasingly sought-after artifacts from the Machine Age have become icons of an important era of American industrial design.
This historic merger of art and industry was inspired, by the luxury goods displayed at the 1925 Paris Exposition, which coined the term "Art Deco." American industrial designers embraced the ornate, "modernistic" style promoted by the exposition and incorporated elements of the style into their designs for the most humble, utilitarian objects ranging from dime-store rouge pots to kitchen utensils, wallpaper to automobiles.
