the collection of a european gentleman Collecting may not always be present in one's DNA (although in my case it may well be, as all my family have been avid collectors for generations), but once smitten by the particular emotion that comes from the acquisition of a new object of one's desire, it almost feels as though it's 'in the blood'. Having accompanied my father for many years as he bid at auction or negotiated with a dealer for some object d'art, I learnt to appreciate many of the finer aspects of collecting. Auction house experts and knowledgeable dealers became friends and were always available to give advice. Frequent visits to museums as I was growing up brought further enlightenment. My fascination with the variety and beauty of Oriental artifacts started with these times spent with my father and, over a period of years, my admiration of the skill and ability of Asian artisans to work in a variety of mediums has grown immensely. This collection has been assembled to reflect that admiration. A portion of the collection has already been auctioned by Christie's in New York (September 2011) and in Hong Kong (November 2011), and again by Christie's in London (November 2013). A further part of that collection is now being offered for sale by Dunbar Sloane. It is my hope that these things of beauty may bring the same joy to their new owners as they have brought to me and my family.
