A bit of Egyptian Revivalism is at play with this palm leaf stoppered bottle from Barbini, circa 1950. We have never seen this particular design from the venerable Murano factory - so rare and unique - that we believe that it was likely a special custom order or a limited edition. The off-white glass is laden with gobs of gold and accented with a salmon colored ring at the base and topped with ball detail on the stopper. Fantastic at 25.5 inches.

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!
