Art Deco Metalware

European Art Deco metal figures, vases, serving pieces, and decorative items were sold in gift shops and department stores in the U.S. in the 1920s and '30s.

Some of the highest prices today are for pieces made by Wiener Werkst├Ątte of Vienna, Austria. The workshop, founded by Josef Hoffmann, Kolo Moser, Dagobert Peche, and Eduard Wimmer, was in business from 1903 to 1931.
