Interesting stuff, JM. I kinda like the one with the polar bear (?) on top.

Dina said...

Nice to look at but I'm glad I don't have to own them.
The photos came out really nice.

I like Art Deco because it hovers somewhere between old and modern. The vases at the bottom are my pick from this collection.

Really nice series of photographs, JM!

Sharon said...

All of these are beautiful pieces. The pottery is exquisite. Very nice!

Leif Hagen said...

Awesome artsy pieces! I especially like the blue and yellow vases in the bottom picture! Will you get a portrait photo of Joe Berardo for you blog?! Go for it!

Boise Diva said...

Any estimate on the value of the collection being shown?

JM said...

Leif Hagen, NO WAY! LOL! I really like his art collection, but that's about it! :-)

Boise Diva, I have no idea...

Jarart said...

Very nice collection. I'm attracted to the pottery in the last picture.

Lois said...

Very nice shots JM! I do like that bear.

Gunn White said...

So nice and interesting to see your photographs from the Art Deco collection. I can not make up my mind about which one is my favourite ...

Babzy said...

Hi JM , great shots again ,i can recognise on the third shot the Bear by François Pompon, am i right ?

Jacob said...

I think these are great photos, JM...not easy to capture this kind of art...but you did it well.

Not my kind of art...but then again, I'm not sure what my kind of art is...;-)

Have a great evening!

Beautiful and interesting!

Asta said...

Hi JM,

Wow! Beautiful art! In particullar the bear on top of the table/locker is impressing me. The light and the colours - it looks like wawes..... with 2 eyes in the middle. Wonderful shots of magnificant art!

Best regards
Asta

Somehow you manage to capture the light and the cool atmosphere around this artsy stuff, almost feels like I'm there.

Well done and thanks for sharing!

JM said...

Babzy, you are absolutely right! :-)

Cristóbal said...

Hahahaha, it seems that you and Berardo don't get along. It's an interesting collection. I like how the exhibition is put out.

As I've said before I'm a great fan of art deco and these are some wonderful examples.

My post tomorrow will be art deco but not as nice as these!
