Portrait of Apollo
This lidded urn is a collaboration from two of the greatest names to be frequently mentioned on this blog. The vessel itself was a part of Gunnar Nylund's "Flambe" series and decorated by his equally renown associate Carl Harry Stalhane. The classical imagery is that of a Roman Archer (my assumption is that it is the god Apollo). The highlights of genuine gold give the illustration an illuminated quality. For Rorstrand, Sweden, 1930s 9 x 9

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 daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
