ARTEFACT OF THE WEEK: Today’s artefacts depict three statuettes of women dressed in 1930s period attire. The sleek lines and pose of each figurine personifies the 1930s era, and especially of the Art Deco style. Art Deco is a style of decorative art developed originally in the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms, sharply defined outlines, often bold colours and the use of synthetic materials, as plastics.
