Profile Information

Which types of jewellery especially interest you?
Jewellery, Textiles and Objects from India and Tibet
Jewels from which regions interest you?
India, Tibet

Since more than 35 years I collect and deal with Indian Art. I lived several years in North India; still I go there at least once a year to visit friends and find interesting things for my gallery.

I offer a nice collection of old Indian jewellery in gold and silver, statues and tribal art.

I am very interested in textiles from India, I wrote one book on "Baghs and Phulkaris from the Punjab", which was published in HALI Magazin in 2000 and another on "The Life and Textiles of the Banjara".

Please contact me if you are interested in more information or if you are looking for a specific item. You can also visit my website
