The tableau at the top is a clear homage to the surreal paintings of Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico. Notice the appearance of Roman architecture in both our framed enamel-on-copper art and again in the example of his own oil painting above. The enamel has provenance in the form of a handwritten inscription on the back that simply reads "Roma 1953" and the sweet remnants of a vintage Christmas label. 19" square (including frame)

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!
