A small selection of favorites from our vast Bavarian porcelain collection. The Gemmo series is from the Heinrich factory of Germany, made in the 1950s/60s. This particular line is quite coveted. The artisans used a diamond cutting wheel to carve into the porcelain and then hand gild the grooves with 24k gold - an ingenious process Heinrich pioneered.

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!
