Collection

Peter specialises mainly in Indo-Persian arms dating from the 16th up to the early 19th century. As an arms and arts lover I take great joy in seeking the most beautiful, rare and commercial items coming from fairs, auctions, antique dealers and private collections. The items listed on this website are for sale unless specified otherwise. There are many more items that aren't listed. Some are still in transit, are being photographed, cleaned or simply involve more research. If you're out for something specific please do not hesitate to contact me. I try to describe all items as correctly as possible and take special care in extensively photographing each object. I'm always open to opinions / offers from collectors, enthusiasts and fellow dealers.
