How Does This Gallery Work ?

This gallery is dedicated to the French Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Mid-20th Century periods. It is not only a gallery. The most often a gallery is composed of informations about the seller, photos, description and price of the items on sale. Full stop.

Here, you will find this, of course. But, you will be able to consult our database about designers, editors, fabrics, books, auction results, and many other things in relation with our items on sale. So, you should find here enough datas to consider a possible purchase with the maximum of informations.


How does it work ?

The goal of this gallery is to give the maximum of informations about the items on sale.
We consider an item from two angles. The first one is its nature : is it a chair, a ceramic vase, an oil painting ? The second one is the maker, designer, artist, fabric, firm, ... who made it.

We offer two kinds of searches :

. by category : all the furniture, all the paintings, all the art glass works, ... on sale

. by maker : all the items on sale by a specific artist, designer, editor, fabric, movement, ...


By category

On the categories page, we edit all the available categories. Each one redirects to a page where all the corresponding items on sale are listed each one by a photo.
Here, we consider two kinds of items :

. We do not kow who made the item. We cannot associate it with a maker. The photo redirects to a page where the item is described.

. We know the maker. In this case, the photo redirects to the maker page. If we can identify several sources of an item (for example, created by an artist in a fabric for an editor), we link to the first maker known in this order : artist/designer, editor, fabric. In the description of the item, you will find a link to every other associated maker listed in this gallery.


By maker

It is simple. All the items on sale, by a known maker, are listed on the corresponding maker page. A maker can be an artist, a designer, an editor or a fabric. On the maker page, we add a biography, books, auction results and links to other websites in relation with the maker.
