Stylized golden details and nods to ancient art and architecture are to be found on these art deco era vessels from Josef Ekberg for Gustavsberg
- a fair
deduction would find Egyptian Revivalism at play here. Created around
1930 in Sweden, the style would coincide with the Egyptomania design
trend that was still raging post King Tut's discovery in the 20s. Notice the shapes and heavy gilt of the handles. The lids are especially decorative and reminiscent of classical Egyptian columns.

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!
