Americana in the New York Times

If you enjoy looking at my blog or like my booth at the Brooklyn Flea, I recommend that you check out this article about Americana in Today's NYTimes Home & Garden section.

The reporter did a nice job of describing a somewhat vague period and style from the post-Victorian era through World War II. I like the practicality and beauty of many things from this time. The advertising and commercial design was simple, imaginative and well-made.

Here are a couple of nice examples from my collection of Americana from this period.
