The elegant yet practical chrome and brass houseware specialties created by Chase Brass & Copper Company during the 1930s are synonymous with Art Deco. Reprinted here for the first time are the company's 1934 and 1935 catalogs, issued at the height of Deco's popularity. Objects by such industrial design pioneers as Lurelle Guild, Walter Von Nessen, Russel Wright and Harry Laylon are pictured, with full descriptions, inventory information, and current price guide. Introductory comments are by Leslie Pina and Donald-Brian Johnson, co-authors of Higgins: Adventures in Glass and the forthcoming book on Chase Chrome. Their remarks focus on Chase's contribution to Art Deco style, Chase history, and the unique features of each catalog. A must have for Deco collectors, as well as all admirers of 20th century decorative arts.
