The "Melanie" line of porcelain was created during the late 60s at one of the leading Bavarian companies, Alboth & Kaiser. Coral in color and intensely decorated with stunning floral details and gilding. Obviously hand-painted as you can see the strokes of the artisan's hand in each pedal. This is a monumental example of a vase from the line at 18" tall.

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!
