Here's one for the ages. Did you know that the Italian pottery company Bitossi was commissioned by none other than New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art to create reproductions for their gift shop? This fish is an example of a repro of an Ancient Egyptian Faience relic (circa 1500 BC), but made for the history loving collector in the 1960s...and once again available in the present - at The End of History! 13" x 7"

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!
