Titled "Rooster" & acquired from the artist's own estate, this bronze sculpture is by the late, great, Robert Metzner, circa 1970, who in his near century on earth achieved more than a dozen mere mortals. Aside from his art, which can be found on display at UCLA, Caltech and in private collections, he was a great inventor. He held patents on all sorts of audio equipment from transcribers used by the US Army during WWII, to school audio equipment used by teachers and students nationwide. His Metzner Starlight Turntable is still praised and collected by serious audiophiles. If that was not enough, he also invented the first modern gas/electric hybrid automobile, the prototype which is now at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. This is a chance to own a brilliant sculpture by a true genius.

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!
