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. Discover the rare elegance and beauty of vintage and reproduction starburst mirrors and browse the collection today.
