Mum's The Word
Sent to us from our dealer in Japan, these mid-century Bronze candlesticks carry the Imperial Seal of Japan in the form of the symbolic 16 petal chrysanthemum. Under the Meiji Constitution, no one was allowed to use the symbol other than the Emperor of Japan, a law honored until 2005, which leads us to believe these vintage finds could very well be Royal commissions.

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!
