Above is a playful and very sought-after underwater scene set in glass by Alfredo Barbini for Cenedese, circa 1950s. I especially love the controlled bubbles designed to look as if they are coming out of their mouths.

Further underwater...we discover this elegantly minimalist Murano angel-fish, no doubt from one of the finer factories in Venice.

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!
