Under The Sea
Alfredo Barbini created these underwater fantasias of sea life out of glass in the 1950s. The more commonly known variety were done for Cenedese and are amorphic in shape. What makes this gem commissioned for Salviati so unique is that tne scene is capture in a cube making it feel that much more modernist. Great as a desk accessory or to add interest to a bookshelf.

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!
