The egg as decorative object is an eternal classic, but this glowing find was made in Murano circa 1970. The true emerald hue gives it a jewel-like quality and is best displayed near a bright light source to see the deeply saturated green tone and to appreciate hand etched striations. It looks both medieval like some dragon egg from "Game of Thrones' and Sci-Fi like an alien pod. Regardless, it is chic in any era. About the size of an ostrich egg- 7" including the custom Lucite base.
NOTE: We will be closed Wed-Friday to celebrate Thanksgiving - back on "Small Business Saturday"

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!
