Born in Sicily in 1876, Jean Gerbino made his name in Vallauris, France, perfecting his own technique inspired by the Chinese Neriage - pottery
of the 7th Century Tang Dynasty. From his initial offerings in the
1930s, his mosaic-like work was appreciated and awarded many
times for decades to come, culminating in his earning France's Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters in 1962. This is the largest example of his work we have seen - this stunningly complex vase stands over 16" tall.

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!
