A Metroland Art Deco Villa in Red and Brown Bricks - Coonans
Built in the late 1920s, this pretty stylised
red and brown brick Art Deco villa can be found in the Melbourne suburb of
Coonans Hill. This cottage style with its low slung tile roof in a mixture of
shades, picked out feature clinker bricks and rounded porch were very popular
amongst the newly moneyed middle-class who could finally afford to buy their own
homes. Even the light to the left of the front door is very Art Deco in its
design. Comfortable and cottage like in the Metroland style of interwar Art Deco
architecture so popular in Australia during the late 1920s, this house and many
others like it represented stability and respectability, without being showy.
This house has a neat garden which appears once to have featured an avenue of
substantially sized trees, which were probably planted as saplings when the
willa was first built. The current owners obviously wanted more light and felled
them, but have created a new avenue of topiaried lilly pilly trees and standard
roses. With a a neat lawn to finish it off, the garden is suitably cottage-like
and suits the house.
Faries Art Deco Lamp
Here is my latest art deco acquisition. This
bronze-finished, machine age lamp was designed by Bert Dickerson for the Faries
Manufacturing Company in Decatur, IL, circa 1930's. Bert Dickerson was the
designer for nearly all the Faries lamps of this period and was granted various
patents for the series which was called the "Guardsman." They all date from the
mid to late 30's. This lamp was designed as a desk lamp, and the unique tilted
shade design was made to facilitate the changing of the bulb and not to angle
the light as is often claimed. The finial is very iconic. I think this lamp
would fit perfectly in a Film Noir movie!
