20th Century Design and Decorative Arts

Our 20th Century Design and Decorative Arts Department offers a world of beauty featuring items from the Arts and Crafts and aesthetic movements, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods through to mid-20th Century and even contemporary design.

Whether it's utilitarian or ornamental, a modern vase or an arts and crafts tapestry, we uncover a vast array of beautiful objects that are both useful as well as beautiful.

Items we except include furniture, silver, glass, ceramics, metalware, paintings and more.

This section is led by Andy Green, a collector for more than 20 years.

Hansons holds three Decorative Arts Auctions a year. Previous highlights include a Vase Deux Anses Hautes, which sold for £12,800, and an Emile Gale Passion Flower vase sold for £39,000.
