With cupcakes practically passé, the sweet spot for desserts among those in the know are the traditional French Macaroon. Why on earth do I bring this up on a blog about 20th Century objects?
The photo on top speaks for itself.
This vintage design from Murano's Cenedese reminds me strongly of the revivalist dessert, albeit in Scavo glass and no less than 10.5" in diameter! Mouthwatering orange in color, and essentially a lidded glass box. Delicious!

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 daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
