Just Clowin' Around Here
Yes, we love a good chuckle, yet these are not just any clowns. These are actually created by one of the most renowned names in mid-century Murano glass... Alfredo Barbini. Whimsical paperweights imported by Weil Ceramics and Glass for their tony 5th Avenue showroom in the 50s. Fun was fashionable once upon a time.

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!
