A major name in glass that dates back to the thirteenth century, in fact to the very roots of the glass blowing industry on the island of Murano, is Zanetti.

Close inspection shows the intricate feathering technique that only a master could achieve and the legs and feet are gilt bronze.

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!
