Mid- century Italian glass with a nod to antiquity, made in Murano by Barovier & Toso. The 1950s minty green and gold flecked fruit bowl above has the most whimsical and unexpected detail - glass pear handles - a modern flourish we have never seen before.
Below is a 1940s bottle and glass with a decidedly Ancient Roman twist - A crest of young warrior pressed into the glass like a recently discovered artifact.

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!
