Tutti Fruitti Fratelli
Fratelli Toso made glass objects that look sweet enough to eat. The technique used to achieve the candy striped effect is called 'a canne' in Italian, which is exactly what it sounds like...the use of colored canes of glass melted to create a new form, like the delicious stopper bottle you see above. 11''

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!
