We are expanding our reach further yet - into the far past with this great find. This black lacquer cabinet has a phenomenal provenance. Dating from 1770 AD, the lotus flower design is actually the royal crest of the Sakakiwara family, one of Japan's regal clans during the Tokugawa period. This gentleman's chest features gilt silver hardware and is in very good condition, given its age and travel. Dimensions: 39.25" w x 19.5" d x 49.5" h.

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!
