From the flap copy: "Initiated by a world depression and ended by a world war, the 1930's was (sic) a period of insecurity both financial and political, which was inevitbaly reflected in fashions in the decorative arts....The theme of the thirties was 'anything goes'--from the stark simplicity of modernism to the bizarre surrealism embodied in Dali's lobster telephone or Schiaparelli's shoe hat."
