This wall hanging is a classic ceramic in the tradition of German "Fat Lava"...in that it is an incredibly textural and multidimensional bas-relief. Generous amounts of copper dust highlight the still life of contrasting bottle figures on an earthy backdrop.
The manufacturers mark is pressed into the reverse side, and I have just now discovered it is an original by an accomplished artist in many mediums named Helmut Friedrich Schäffenacker (1921-2010). Piece measures 15" tall and 5" wide

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!
