Since 1977, we have had the privilege of handling some of the greatest treasures of music and dance history. Founded on a passion for the unique, beautiful, rare, and meaningful, our firm has enjoyed forty-three years of varied work. Every item we handle is represented by years of research, love, and sleuthing, and our greatest satisfaction comes from matching these vibrant, precious artefacts with institutions and collectors who will preserve, love, and learn from them.

It is not always the information in our catalogue descriptions that make our work and the items we handle so enjoyable. In this blog you’ll find the extras: the hidden context behind an item, conversations with collectors, antiquarians, musicologists, and musicians, and the personal side of our own interactions with these treasures.
