It was written in his New York Times obituary, Luther Greene (1909-1987) essentially had two careers - producing Broadway plays, starting in 1935, and designing country and rooftop gardens, starting in the mid-1950's. He ran his landscaping business from his unusual basement apartment on East 58th St, near Sutton Place, with a private sidewalk greenhouse entrance and, inside, a grotto of seashells. The grotto, the work of many artists and craftsmen, took 20 years to create. The apartment was included on several walking tours. We present for auction an assortment of Delft and blue and white faience from his and his daughter's large collection. Please contact us with any inquiries.
