There are levels of luxury when it comes to collectible glass - and these two are definitely top tier. We have literally been searching for years for a pair of this style Barbini to become available. The striped pattern is part of a collection based on the circus tent. Perhaps the popularity of Pagliacci inItalian culture inspired their design. The graceful lines are quite refined, the heaviness of the glass, the subtlety of the blue color, and the generous amount of gold within all add to the value.
Made exculsively for the American market, late 1940s to early 1950s. 26", 20"

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!
