One of my favorite 1950s patterns by Aldo Londi for Bitossi is called "Finestra", which translated from Italian means windows . Perhaps the reflective nature of the genuine gold decoration is key to the name. Measuring in at 16", this is a rather tall as well as pristine example from the line. The color combination just reminds me of the Mediterranean mix of the sky, flora, and deep blue Italian sea. But, it's the sunken lid that really tops it off for me!

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!
