China by way of Bavaria
A gorgeously decorated vase that one would swear was an Oriental antique. But, turn it over, and its mark tells us that it's actually an Asian-themed homage to the very culture that mastered the art of porcelain production to begin with. This mid-century take on the porcelain craft is a pattern line called "Junnan", made by Kaiser, Germany. China, 'Not made in China'!

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!
