New to the collection of leaded glass ornaments are these stunning Art Nouveau style pieces (we snuck in a few Old Hollywood style, too!) Each is unique, and never replicated!
Made using antique leaded glass, these little beauties look lovely all year round and make a wonderful gift item!
Find them in our Art Glass section of our store, or, click the image to go to the listing.
When we formed Grease and Grace four years ago, I don’t think we would have ever imagined our art on the red carpet.
Every time I ship a purse (or any of our art) to its new ‘forever home’, I think about its destination, and what it will be like. I consider where it’s lived before, and who with (all of our handbags are vintage!)
At the time, when I shipped this pretty blue and black metallic baby to her new home three thousand miles away in California, I couldn’t really comprehend how cool a life it was about to receive.
As the pictures rolled in from The Emmys 2016, I had tears in my eyes! What an honor, a real joy, to have a piece of our art on that magical red carpet of dreams. Beautiful and sweet Melissa of the Television Academy is the new owner of this pin-striped vintage handbag. It found its perfect home, and perfect owner!
Just look at that! Bringing the “Old Hollywood Style” back to Hollywood. Perfectly matched to her gown, it’s as if they were made to go together.
Thank you for sending us these fabulous and glamorous photos! We love it, and we are elated.
Dean Hogg is the artist behind the bags.
He has been working with pin-striping media for four decades. His love for 1950s style has created a classic look that is truly a blend of the past and present. Grease and Grace is a family owned company, of which Dean is the patriarch.

I know there is somewhat of a resurgence of all things Deco era right now. I’m guessing the Gatsby film has a lot to do with it. This is great for me, as I’ve long been a fan of silent film and early Hollywood. Shiny chrome, multiple mirrors, outrageous and sexy costumes, elaborate geometric patterns and those lovely silvery-black photographs.
More to illustrations to come, but as I delve in to the world before talkies, I’ll share this gal I created (who really could have come from the era slightly after – let’s say pre-code Hollywood era.)
“Paper Moon” is available for sale at our Etsy shop in the ART PRINTS section.
