Golden Era Glass
Two prime yet very different examples of what I would consider centerpiece-worthy works from the Italian maestros. The top piece is likely from Salviati given its delicate lightness and fluidity. The bottom footed bowl is heavier in the hand and features bolder fluted lines making it attributable to Barovier or perhaps Barbini. Both 1950's, Murano.
Top bowl is 10.5" in diameter, Bottom bowl is 13" across

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!
