Atomic Age Porcelain
A distinctly modernist moment from a classic porcelain factory. Germany's Fürstenberghas been in existence since the 18th century, and one would be right to assume most of their wares lean towards the traditional - rosette motifs and grandma's tea service and such. But, in the 1960s they created a modern line with a futuristic bent that we just covet. Alternating between yellow and rose gold are these Verner Panton-esque patterns. Eye-like on the horizontal and planentary on the vertical. Very cool no matter how you look at it!

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!
