Veronese coffee cup and saucer – Royal Crown Derby

The Guardian ran a great feature this week on home wares inspired by The Great Gatsby. What with The Artist proving such a surprise box office hit, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of this art deco style in the build up to Baz Luhrmann’s 3D version of F Scott Fitzgerald’s account of the Jazz Age.

Being skeptical of anything 3D, I’m reserving judgement until I’ve at least seen a trailer, but needless to say with Luhrmann in the director’s chair, the very least we can expect is some opulent art direction and it will be rather pleasing to see some vintage style which favors simple glamour over the current obsession with chintz.
