There are 3 sides to this story...although I'm not aware of any actual literary allusion it might represent. Perhaps its origins are mythical in nature or perhaps a Danish Moby Dick equivalent. The fish is neither a swordfish nor a whale, but some sort of mystical sea creature. In addition we have sailors on a Danish vessel and a classic dessert island...all captured in genuine 24k gold inlay. This is an Art Deco treasure from Royal Copenhagen, circa the 1930s.

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!
