Modernism Meets Ancient Rome
From Naples, Italy, comes this Capodimonte compote in gilded porcelain. Like a scene out of a Roman historical drama...this covered dish depicts all sorts of townsfolk interacting in tiny tableaux. This is one of those decorative pieces that is so over-the-top as to be utterly fabulous.

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!
