In honor of today's annual Mermaid's Day Parade
on Coney Island, I give you three seductive works depicting the
mythical muses. Above is a plate created in the mid-century by an artist
named Sagittaire in the Valluris region of the South of France and below, a pair of Swedish porcelain figurines created in the 1940s by Harald Salomon for Rörstrand.
The plate is 9" in diameter
The statuettes are 16" in height
This bright and cheerful collection of Bitossi "Tirassegno" (Dartboard) patterned pieces was designed by Aldo Londi, made in Italy from the late 60s into the 70s, and imported by Rosenthal Netter for the American consumer.

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!
