The starburst is a graphic design motif that was first popularised during the Art Deco movement – a period that was considered to be at its height during the roaring 20s. The image of a starburst (or sunburst as it is also called) features a star-like shape with rays emanating out from it. Sometimes the centre is a circle, with evenly spread rays surrounding it; sometimes it is a three-dimensional rough star shape with points heading off in all directions. The image can be seen across a range of original Art Deco and Art Deco-inspired furniture and accessories: from gilt inlay starbursts on wood lacquered surfaces, to embellished on the side of cocktail cabinets, you’ll find this iconic image across many heritage pieces in our marketplace.
