Greek Key to Our Hearts
A coffee klatch of drink sets as designed in 1965 by Susan Williams-Ellis at her own self-purchased pottery company called Portmeirion in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The "Greek Key", while obviously an ancient motif, perhaps because her great design, became ubiquitous with mid-century high style. Shown here in partial sets and in three color-ways, a full set offers six cups and saucers. The extra tall carafe (14") became another signature of her work.

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!
