Really Good Gunnar
Gunnar Nylund for Rörstrand, Sweden, circa 1950. A typical shape in an atypical glaze, possibly unique, as we haven't seen it before. The overglaze is so drippy in appearance that it looks like molten caramel. The underglaze is a matte, almost teal color. The effect of the pattern reminds me of leopard spots. This may be a small piece at just 7", but it is a huge statement from the ceramics master.

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!
