A name synonymous with Swedish ceramics is Lisa Larson. The still living artist is a national treasure and is best known for her iconic feline figurines. However, she also created other wares for the home such as this rare large vase seen above. Similar works can be seen in the portrait of the legend at work in her studio at Gustavsberg, shown here in the 1950s. Our vase seems an early prototype for a line that was eventually produced called "Granada". The incised pattern has a wonderfully freeform, almost tribal quality to the lines. Quite a nice size at 14" tall and 12" wide

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!
