Mid-Century Metal Wall Art on eBay

By RetroRuth

So, we have been working on finding some wall art for our house.  Surprisingly, we haven’t seen much stuff!  We got lucky and picked up some brass seagulls for the walls, but no luck finding some of the more abstract stuff that Tom would like.  We have been tossing around the idea of just buying some retro art rather than trying to find vintage stuff. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know!

Until we find exactly what we are looking for, I have been trolling eBay and checking out what they have to offer.  There are some fun ones in here, but my favorite thing isn’t even wall art, its a silver ring room divider! Awesome!

    Finding the right MCM wall art has been difficult. These you found, Ruth, are beautiful!

    I love the sea urchin one! And that room divider is insanely good!

    Tried Etsy yet?

    Oooh, I like the peacocks in your eBay widget! Too bad I am pretty much out of wall space in my house! I swear my ex in-laws had that one abstract one from the eBay widget hanging in their basement for years.

    I would suggest checking with your local art school. There are many very poor and talented artists that would kill to do a commissioned piece – from a canvas to mixed media. Tell them what you love, what you’re looking for and pay the same price or more often “less” than what you would have paid for the “something” you didn’t really want in the first place. It is a great way to support your local art community, too. When they are famous, you can brag on how you have a commissioned piece from back in the day.
