This piece of glass history has today arrived from a dealer in Venice, Italy, its very place of origin...as it was made in Murano by the famed maestro Giulio Radi circa 1950. As founder of the factory known as AVeM, Radi was among the most acclaimed glass blowers of his time. This piece has everything going for it. A fiery Red/Orange base covered in layers upon layers of both gold and silver foil that split apart in the cooling process to reveal the lava like striations underneath.We also love the shape and balloon-knot-like opening. Just one of our most valued new acquisitions! 10" 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!
