Back in Black
Expanding our horizons into the 21st century (our first foray into new millennial glass works) with an onyx trio from contemporary artist Massimo Micheluzzi, 2003. Rare to see solid black glass for sure, but the major draw here is the carving technique. Known as "battuto", Micheluzzi utilizes a diamond cutting tool to create fluid canals, not unlike the waterways of his hometown of Venice. This work seems to bridge traditional Venetian glassblowing methods with a decidedly modern viewpoint.

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!
