A name to look for in Italian ceramics is Fantoni. You'll recognize the distinctive signature, writ large, when you find an authentic piece such as this oversized ashtray. The hallmarks are all here:
A)the heavy, gloppy multi-tonal glaze
B) the scraffito (etched) surface
We don't encourage smoking, but we do support collecting great examples of form over function!

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!
