Made by living sculpter Claude VictorBoeltz - a self-described "Erosurrealist Master Artist", this dead stock collection was offered to us directly from the family after they became aware of our previous post. This rare group is among the last objects created expressly for CartierParis in the 1970s. This signature technique is what Victor refers to as “exploded bronze” - 24KT gold plated bronze, decorated with rare African quartz crystals. The top two are monumental in size 15" x 14" - the candelabra is 22" tall and 12" wide. The smaller sculpture above is 9" x 5".

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!
