Isn't Art Deco The Slick Early Mid Century Cousin To Vintage Modern? Me Thinks So. Check Out These Pretty Little Stain Glass Art Deco Window Pains. Status: Underutilized.
What to do with these? I've had these for years but only just pulled them out of the packaging that the seller wrapped them in! When I saw them I knew I had to have them but have never figured out what to do with them.
They were covered in a thin layer of grease so I'm thinking these were in a kitchen window. We picked
these up while just out on a neighborhood walk one day a few years ago. The Girlfriend used to live on
the south side of St. Louis in a neighborhood known as Tower Grove East and we used to love going for
walks to look at all the hundred year old homes.
While out on one of these walks we found a small yard sale. There wasn't much in our style available
but these two small panels caught my eye. I paid the man, he wrapped them up and off we strolled.
A few years later, here we are, unwrapping and cleaning up the pair. But what to do with them? I'm
thinking about maybe getting some wire or strong fishing line to put them up in a window where they
can be properly admired.
They don't really "fit" the theme of our humble abode here in North County but they'd look Fab over
at the shop in Frenchtown! Isn't France where the whole Art Deco movement started? And it all
comes (in admittedly, a very small way!) full circle!
