This adorable vase may be tiny (just a hair over 3" tall) but it is a huge achievement. Created by the great Gunnar Nylund for Rorstrand, circa 1950s. Whether this was a sample model for a larger piece or originally intended as a miniature is anyone's guess. It boggles the mind that such fine lines and complex decoration could be crafted in such a diminutive size. The checkerboard motif also lends it a sort of Alice in Wonderland feeling.

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!
