Quan Yin Porcelain
Intended to suggest the Chinese figurines that were once carved from a single ivory tusk, this is, in reality, a rare American porcelain figure created by the Boehm company. While there were only 81 ever made, this is from the first edition from 1956 (1 of 60). Quan Yin is an enduring decorative motif, as she is considered Buddha in female form. 16"

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!
