From the John Perry Collection: A Cabinet of Curiosities
John Perry's Cabinet of Curiosities, both natural and man-made was a catalogue for the ages and featured some of this legendary museum curator, writer and social historian's strangest and most fantastical treasure. John was sad to see them go but Kiwi Collectors were keen to get their hands on Pacific tribal arts, White's aviation photos, rare early muka kete, pounamu treasures, folk art and all manner of ceramics and NZ collectables. See the Gallery section for a glimpse of this once in a lifetime catalogue.
