Friday Fun Quiz - 20th Century Decorative Arts Quiz!

LET US ENTERTAIN YOU - Fieldings Friday Fun Quiz.....

Well there's another week gone but its Friday now and the weekend is here so I thought rather than more facts and stories we'd start your weekend off with a little quiz....

As you all know I'm a huge 20th Century fan and its been my passion for many years now. I first fell in love with the designs, colour and style of the Art Deco era, with everything from ceramics and glass to furniture and art work grabbing my attention. Over the years my interests have grown to include mid-century modern and even contemporary from an endless list of designers.

At Fieldings Auctioneers we've been holding our specialist Decades of Design sale for over 16 years now and we were early market leaders in this now popular area of the industry. So I've dug down in to the huge array of objects we've both sold and also some pieces from my own collection to test your knowledge. 

There are 12 questions each with a bonus point so theres a possible 24 points up for grabs in this weeks fun friday night quiz!

And to encourage you all I'm going to offer up a prize for the winner! There'll be a £25-00 gift voucher for the person with the highest score. In the event of a tie I'll draw the winners name out the hat on Sunday night. Email me your answers to

So you've got the weekend to get the 'little grey cells' working! Good luck everyone and no cheating!
