More Silver Stunners
One of America's best known and lauded metalsmiths is John Prip. He was born in the US of Danish descent. His grandfather was also a silversmith at a factory he owned in Denmark, where as a young man John picked up his love for the craft. Above is the famous coffee set often mistakenly attributed solely to Gio Ponti, however we know Ponti did design the flatware that would have been used with what is called the "Diamond"collection. Its origins are most likely a result of two genius minds in collaboration to create this sterling silver service in 1958 for Reed & Barton.

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!
