Typical, Yet Unique
This Barbini bowl is an oxymoron in glass, as its shape is so recognizable that it's practically signature to the company, yet what makes it special is this cool minty green/caramel/gold color combination rarely seen. I'm sure this particular bowl was made in limited quantities, since in all our years of collecting we have seen very few if any in this particular coloration.

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!
