Welcome! I’m Peter Dekker, researcher at heart, dealer by trade.       
I help museums and private individuals understand and expand their collections.

Each of my pieces is carefully documented to keep serving the community long after they are sold.      
Also, see my continuously expanding glossary of terminology, a personal notebook made available for all to use.

Enjoy browsing, and do get in touch if I can help with anything.
