Alive with Deadstock
JUST ARRIVED: A treasure trove of never-been-used hand blown Empoli glass from an importer called Balboa. This is just the tip of the iceberg of items we acquired en masse from a collection that remained packed in its original straw! This group was destined to be sold by a New York specialty shop of the period called Paul's of Manhattan...as the original stickers can attest. We can only imagine why they never made it. Did Paul's go out of business? For whatever reason, they remained in storage, but are finally available 60 years after they were made. An abundant selection like this is pure opulence!

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!
