King Tut as realized in 1959 by the famed Italian ceramicist Urbano Zaccaganini. It has purposefully aged quality to the crazing and glazing...as if it were actually dug up after thousands of years. Interesting side note: Our shop's proprietor Stephen has a real family connection to the original discovery. Stephen's maternal grandmother was actually present in Egypt when Tutankhamun's tomb was excavated and she even knew Howard Carter. How's that for a little bit of history repeating?

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!
