For those with Metropolitan tastes seeking the crème de la crème of mid-century glassware and ceramics, it is a must to visit The End of History. Displayed proudly upon 20th Century rosewood Danish furnishings appears the world's most extensively-curated collection of fine glassware.

With over twenty-one years in the business and a background in the fashion industry, it is no wonder Stephen Saunders has an eye for excellence in choosing captivating shapes and colors. Such luxury goods are sought by international clientèle and interior designers alike with an extensive display of ceramics and art glass collections by renowned producers such as Barbini, Blenko and Murano, to name a few.

Ceramics date from the 1930s while all glassware and art glass date from the 50s and 60s with origins in Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Germany and the United States. Behold a decorous selection of vases, lighting fixtures, trays, paper weights, bowls and book ends.

Unlike today’s modern art glass, mid-century glass designs were inspired by the royal collections of Asian ceramics and were hand thrown and blown using true mineral pigments as well as copper dust with gold and silver leafing which sustain luster throughout time. There is no comparison to a fine vintage piece.

Consider it a bargain to spend top-dollar when shopping such an extensive collection of supreme mid-century glass. No such collection under one roof exists anywhere else in this world. Truly a magnificently edited collection of the highest quality luxury mid-century glassware.
