The 20th Century Decorative Arts department at Bonhams showcases a wide range of glass, metalwares, sculpture and furniture from the period 1860 to the present day.
We focus on designers and makers from the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods as well as Contemporary Ceramics and Glass.
Bronze and ivory sculpture by artists such as Chiparus, Priess and Lorenzl have soared in value in recent years. The market is also very active for Lalique and Daum glass and silver by Georg Jensen and Liberty & Co.
We also offer Vintage Posters in our London auctions, particularly those in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles, including travel, ski and advertising posters from the period, by artists and illustrators such as Alphonse Mucha and Leonetto Cappiello
