Culturalpatina, a Passion Fulfilled
I have had a passion for collecting all things beautiful and unique my entire life and would like to share some of these items with others having a similar interest. My collections have representative items from the American Southwest, Asia, Middle East, Cuba, Central and South America, East Africa and Nagaland in North Eastern India. I strive to offer the best items that I have collected or can find for sale to both the casual and/or discriminating collector of unique cultural items from each of these areas of the world. I also try to focus on vintage, prehistoric, and historic items if I can find them. My interest is in pottery, textiles, art, bronze sculptures, and extraordinary pieces of adornment. All sales are via the internet only.
If you like western art, I have the largest collector of Ron Stewart art in the world and am his East Coast gallery. You will find some of his earliest paintings to some of his most recent ones that have not been shown in public.For those of you who like Ron Stewart and his western art, you might be interested in viewing a recently completed video biography of Ron's life at https://vimeo.com/135487381. As noted above, you can check out the largest collection of his art in the US, here at culturalpatina.
In addition, I have the second largest collection of authentic Naga Indian Art in the US. It is all authentic, meaning that it was made by the Naga and used in their cultural ceremonies. The majority of the items shown were collected prior to 1982, when the Naga converted to Christianity and are museum quality.
We are also currently running a fun contest on featured items 1-6. If you can name one or more of the featured curiosities, you will receive a 15% discount on anything in the store.
Once you identify the item(s) you want, I will make the adjustments to the price on this end so that you can purchase them. Please send your request to purchase via a convo and I will respond straight away.
In addition, if you see something that you really want, but think the price is to much, please give me a call at 703-503-8019 and we can discuss it. I am always open to suggestions.
Culturalpatina recently had nine of its products selected by the editorial team for inclusion in "The Old West" Antiques and Arts "Showroom" which covers high end Galleries and Dealers from across the US. We believe that this says a lot about the quality of the pieces we carry. Check these out at: http://www.antiquesandthearts.com/meet-the-dealer/?id=1474.
As a follow on culturalpatina was featured in "The Gallery" Antiques and Arts Weekly on 10-7-15. The article discusses the spiritual underpinnings in two pieces of Lincoln Fox's Bronze Sculptures and can be found at: http://www.antiquesandthearts.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Gallery-Fall-2105.pdf.
