Metalliferous and Marvelous
This little lucite and metal box sits atop an equally ornate silver plated tray. Both by WMF, a company which dates back to the mid-1800s in Germany and is still in operation. Established for industrial metalworking in the early days, WMF quickly evolved to become a manufacturer of decorative home goods from the high-end to the well designed utilitarian goods it is known for today.
Boxtop measures 4.5" X 3.5" , shown here on a 10.5" Square tray.

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!
