I See a Pattern
This blog entry starts at the bottom. A sure way to identify a maker is the pattern found in the glass. Flip the bowl and observe the quilted look seen here. It is signature to the Venetian factory Barbini, not unlike a classic Chanel handbag. An eggplant colored Murano bowl is as much a fashion statement in the home and certainly just as chic.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
