I promise that the next post will NOT be a photo of a Yard-O-Led. I got my second YOL today. I had the opportunity to make a bargain, took it and the YOL Viceroy Victorian in sterling silver finally arrived today. The engravings are beautiful and it shares the clip – how I love these clips – with the Retro. A very stylish pair that makes my fantasy wander to the 1920’s and its sophisticated aesthetics – the Art Deco and the emerging modernism and the trail blazing art, just to mention a few things. The 1920’s has often been described as a decade of dancing on the edge of disaster – economic catastrophes, political instability – everything pointing towards a disaster – but at the same time a great decade for art, fashion and design.
