Welcome to the Roaring Twenties!

Happy 2020! I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas. Are you ready for a new month, a new year and a new decade?

You only get ten years to be in your twenties, unless history repeats itself. So today, let’s go back to the roaring twenties of the last century!  It was a time of opulence and a robust economy. Many of the cultural influences included jazz clubs and despite prohibition, there were extravagant parties for the upper echelon. Risky behavior was seen in women on every street corner with short, bobbed hair, cloche hats and fashions which had changed dramatically. Hemlines rose and corsets were discarded! Women gleefully put on rouge and lipstick to indicate they were “modern women!” Add to that a cigarette in woman’s mouth, she held great appeal!

Art Deco was in and so were stained glass windows. Here are a few examples we thought you’d enjoy while you take your visual trip backward one-hundred years.

If you enjoy looking back to the roaring twenties, here is more for you!

We hope you will be dancing into the new decade with much optimism and joy! Come back and visit us soon and often. We will see what new products MZ Glassworks creates in this New Year.
