Test your decorative knowledge: Which of these special spotted ceramic vases is British and which is German??? Answers will be updated tomorrow. UPDATE: The top vase is from West Germany and falls into a category widely known as "Fat Lava". This type of pottery is recognizable by it's rough textures and bold combinations of color. The lower vase is Poole from Great Britain. From the Delphis line, this pottery is equally bright, but the surface is smooth and the coloration more painterly in its application.

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 daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
