Calling All Architecture Buffs
Once again we've amassed an impressive collection of these architectural models of German Radio/TV towers from the mid-century. Hand lathed and made from a mix of materials, from bronze to copper to stainless steel. This grouping (and I insist they do look best en masse) features a few which incorporate plastic or Lucite elements to replicate the look of windows. A knowledgeable customer once told me that creating these were a prerequisite for graduating architecture school and that some of these models went on to be realized as genuine structures throughout Germany. They range from 13" to 18"

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!
