Over the past two decades we have been pursuing our passion for antique American Indian art with an emphasis on the Northwest Coast, Eskimo and Inuit cultures. Along the way we have been privileged to frequent many of the finest museums around the world, tour the basements, meet many of the great museum curators. These curators, authors, and scholars in the field that have helped educate us and offer much priceless advice. This has helped us achieve our dreams of building a collection and inventory worthy of most museums. Our focus is building important collections of a historic nature for both private collectors, corporations and museums. We have a wonderful gallery space in the heart of downtown Vancouver that is available for viewing by appointment only.
