Initially promoted as "the answer to the housewife's prayer," the gleaming chromium, brass, and copper houseware specialties of the Chase Brass & Copper Co. today stand as icons of American Art Deco style. This book chronicles the entire Specialty line produced by Chase from 1930 to 1942 and profiles the industrial designers who made it possible, including such pioneers as Lurelle Guild, Walter Von Nessen, Russel Wright, and Harry Laylon. An essential reference for Deco collectors, this book features 650 full-color catalog and historical photos, vintage advertising, a complete cross-reference listing, and a price guide. This in-depth look at the unique Chase blend of practicality and streamlined modern design will appeal to all admirers of twentieth-century decorative arts.
