My 20 year Spanish Colonial Journey

My 20 years of hunting Antiques throughout Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador was an amazing journey into the past of Spain's Conquistadors and the following two centuries of Spanish Colonial Arts development. Starting in 1989, my guide and I traveled to as many colonial cities, pueblos & haciendas possible, in search of the next Spanish Colonial treasure. The thousands of carved Doors, Furniture, Carved Frames & architectural pieces we acquired and restored, lead to my deep appreciation of the uniqueness & beauty of each piece. In Colonial times there were no factories, lights, electricity or machinery, only the skill and talent of these Artisans.      Carvers with their own set of knives and carving style.    Wood Turners creating new shapes for legs, feet and columns.   The Blacksmith hand forging locks, pulls and handles.  The time and effort that it must of taken to have handcrafted each piece.
