The Supremacy of Salto
Considered the most important name in 20th Century Danish ceramics, it came as no surprise to me that this is the first acquisition of an Axel Salto to grace our shop. Small but rare and precious is this bowl made mid-century during his residency at Royal Copenhagen. In recent years his larger works have fetched record high numbers at international auction - the most important works have sold in excess of half a million dollars. His work is a celebration of nature and often refers to his interests in Asian art and mythology. 2" x 3"

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!
