Beauty & The Beast
Jean Marais was the rare quadruple threat Actor/Ceramicist/Beauty & Beast. The french star of his famous lover Jean Cocteau's film was also an accomplished surrealist in his own right. He created this beastly piece, thrown and signed by his own hand, in the 1950s - no doubt influenced by his most famous role as La Bête. The glaze is a lustrous gun metal grey.

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!
