The art world lost one of its glass Maestros last year when Vittorio Ferro passed away at 80 years of age. His resume was impressive with a nearly 3 decade tenure at Fratelli Toso where he earned his reputation as a master of the craft. This piece is a treasure from the 1980s when he worked for the factory Fratelli Pagnin - in fact, this piece comes from the Pagnin family's private collection. The technique employed here is referred to as Pezzato, from the Italian for "patchwork" - a complex process that incorporates the melding of vintage Murano murrines (rod segments) into a colorful new work. This is a serious collector's dream. 10"

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!
