COLLECTOR’S GUIDE TO ART DECO  by Mary Frank Gaston, Collector books, KY, 1989/1994. 
Over the last two decides, Art Deco has become firmly established as an area of collector interest.  This particular style of design, which was identified as ‘modern’ from its beginning, attracts a diverse audience because it covers the whole spectrum of objects fashioned in its unique and recognizable forms from automobiles, buildings and furniture through art glass, ceramics and jewelry to commonplace items used throughout daily life.  Art Deco collectors seek items made primarily during the 1920’s through the 1940’s which have one or more of Deco’s several identifying traits.  These may range from bronze figures of kneeling nudes to chrome cocktail shakers to blue mirrored radios.  The world of Art Deco truly is broad and has room for all manner of collectors: patrons of expensive art to buffs of nostalgic novelties.  This book focuses on a general interpretation of collecting Deco in the moderate to medium price ranges.” 
Chapter topics include:  bar ware, clocks, dress accessories, dresser accessories, lamps and lighting fixtures, library and study accessories, smoking accessories, statues, table wares, and vases.  An index to manufacturer’s marks and a relative price guide plus general index and bibliography round out this useful handbook on Art Deco collectibles. If Jazz Age American furnishings, especially those designed when mass production was in its infancy, is of interest to you, you would like to begin collecting or understand an existing collection more deeply, this book will add a great deal to your reference shelf.
