Two early career Gunnar Nylund (1904-1997) pieces from his long tenure with Rörstrand, The Swedish factory he is most closely associated with. Because the marks do not include the word "Sweden", we know these to be from the 30s or 40s - as they didn't start marking the country of origin until after 1951. The concentric circle motif reads very deco to my eye. Lovely deep blue/green glaze on heavy stoneware. Very handsome as a pair. 9.5", 10"

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!
