Auctioneers Note:

I first met Peter many years ago when I was exhibiting at the James Johnson great Sydney Antique fairs. As well as being a wonderful personality in the trade, I was always amazed by the varied and amazing quality items which he carried, from the finest furniture to important bronzes, garden statuary, timepieces and decorative arts.

Whilst getting to know him I discovered that he was one of the pioneers of discovering what South America, particularly Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Argentina and Cuba had to offer, and unlike many others who imported antiques from Europe and the UK, he began supplying the Australian thirst for antiques from South America.

With his shop Orlando-Brown, he became one of Sydney’s prominent Antique personalities and known for selling only the highest quality Antiques.

Due to the closing of his shop, peter has decided the time has come for him to say goodbye to all he has in store.

It is indeed a privilege for Christian McCann Auctions to be afforded the opportunity to be able to disperse of Peters Collection by auction.

I look forward to seeing you at the viewing,

Christian McCann
