Thank you Helaine Fendelman for calling attention to the Jazz Age exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in NYC.
"The first major museum exhibition to focus on American taste during the creative explosion of the 1920s, The Jazz Age is a multi-media experience of more than 400 examples of interior design, industrial design, decorative art, jewelry, fashion, and architecture, as well as related music and film. Giving full expression to the decades diversity and dynamism, The Jazz Age defines the American spirit of the period." The exhibit runs through August 30.
One of the 400 examples is the following from Frederick Carder.
Pair Of Candelabra And A Single Place Setting, ca. 192930
Designed by Frederick Carder
Manufactured by Steuben Glass Works
black glass with green overlay
Private Midwest collection
Contrasted color with jet black was a popular motif in fashion as well as decorative design in the 1920s, as evident in this line of glass designed by Frederick Carder and produced by the Steuben Glass factory in Corning, New York, about 1929.
