Deco-Rate - Italian Style
Created in the 1930s, this Italian ceramic vessel is a prime example of the Art Deco aesthetic. Gio Ponti's influence can be seen here - the very spare and geometric design is elevated by his generous use of gold decoration. As artistic director of Richard-Ginori from 1923, his influence on decorative objects can't be underestimated, and, in turn, informed his interior and architectural pursuits - cementing him as one of the greatest multiple-discipline designers of the 20th century.

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!
