Thank you foryour genius...Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin (yes, I'm sure I got that right), German pioneer rigid airship designer (Graf the German term for Count).

Original prototype test flight: 1900. Damn, German engineering - when were they not brilliant? One is compelled to draw a direct parallel line from Count von Zeppelin to Werner von Braun: German born and a Nazi space engineer. Chief architect of both the V2 rocket, shown in pic #8, (Hitler attempted to bomb hell out of London with it), and the Apollo moon landing for the USA. And how did that happen???...secretly.Folks waited in line to cross the Atlantic in this (*Graf Zeppelin 1926, Hindenburg 1936). Passenger luxury equal to water ships. 112 hours Europe to USA. No found overseas flight accidents to the USA, bar the infamous Hindenburg woe. Two other noteworthy crashes: one over theMediterranean,...and somehow...the Italians found a way to crash one over the North Pole. Top speed: 84mph. Capacity: Graph - 26 passengers, 36 crewmen/Hindenburg- 98 passengers, 63 crewmen. Length: 804 ft. (3 Boeing 747's). Power: Four 1,100 horsepower diesel engines (I count 4 on ours w all propellers). *On July 2, 1919 the naval British airship R34 was the first rigid, covered and framed airship to cross the Atlantic, #12.Our model shown is the largest (27") of three models offered in 1928: officially known as the 880 LZ-127, the "Graf Zeppelin" (German passenger ship I.D. # for the Hindenburg was LZ-129). A somewhere near 100 parts craft project - no, they never came assembled. Assorted colors were available, burnt orange and red were big sellers...though as you might expect,...raw steel really does it for all us Art Deco/Machine Ageaficionados.Our other Art Deco items including many more copyrighted Art Deco prints, and genuine Period pieces such as lamps, figurines...all with that enhanced artistic theme of Art Deco to make your surroundings and life more gratifying.

Why Collect Art Deco

Art Deco and the designers of that period were influenced by previous design movements which started around 1890; i.e., The British and American Arts and Crafts (1890- 1915), European and American Art Nouveau (1880 - 1910), Wiener Werkstatte (Vienna Workshop, 1900 -1933) and the Bauhaus (House of Building - Germany, 1919 -1933). These earlier movements focused on curvilinear (curved lines) designs while the Bauhaus was at the forefront in establishing rectilinear (geometric) forms.

In 1925 the French put on a symposium/convention to show-off their objects d' art. At the time they were the leaders of all things related to art and design. It was called the "Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Moderne." The term, Art Deco, was coined by a few of the designers that participated and after some years the term became part of the designer's vernacular.NOTE: Germany was not invited. America did not attend as President Coolidge advised the French that we did not have any noteworthy designers.


So, when engaged in casual conversation, 1925 can be regarded as the starting point for the Art Deco Period. However, academically speaking and when educating a client, I use*1910 - 1915 as the beginning. During this timeframe designers (primarily the British) began incorporating the "circle and the square" (let us give due praise to our very own iconic architect/designer, Frank Lloyd Wright for his contribution here). I am of the opinion, though some will debate otherwise, that this isground-zeroof the geometric (rectilinear) theme and thus we have the inception of what would come to be known as Art Deco.

Now comes your Art Deco Bachelor's Degree...the info I'm presenting to you next is the most important tidbit in this essay. This fact will pay substantial dividends, whether you just want to collect a few pieces that you are attracted to or go beyond that and become a dealer.

IN ORDER TO BE AN "OFFICIAL" ANTIQUE AN ITEM MUST BE 100 YEARS OLD

It may come as surprise to you that only a very few of the collectors and novice dealers in the Art Deco community are aware of this. Over the next several years you will witness a "boom" in the pursuit and value of Art Deco. It all boils down to good timing, we just did the math (1910 - 1915), and it's a simple equation. The count-down has started, 100 years is now! Take action!
