Tingo And Peter Finer AntiquesDownloadable Video - 2015
TINGO - Daniele Lorenzon - Milan Offering some of the most unique objects from superstar Italian designers Peter and Redmond Finer After a short period working at Sothey's in London, Peter Finer started dealing on his own account in 1967. 'Over the years I have met many interesting people in places far and wide. Whether it be in the store room of the Arms and Armour Department of The Metropolitan Museum, New York, or in an antique shop in a back street of Montevideo, the common denominator of all Arms and Armour aficionados is enthusiasm. The most difficult part of dealing is assembling a collection of extraordinary objects that are fresh to the market - collecting that represents thousands of miles of travelling and many hours of negotiating, often with extremely reluctant vendors. Collecting Arms and Armour can give life long satisfaction - there is always something new to learn and something else to buy! My greatest pleasure is to build a collection for a particular client. This can include everything, from advice on acquisition or disposal, to conservation, display and cataloguing. I already have some clients with whom I have dealt for over twenty years, their varied collections are, to some degree, my collections.'
