Announcement   I have had a passion for collecting all things beautiful and unique my entire life and would like to share some of these items with others having a similar interest. I have representative items from the American Southwest, Asia, Middle East, Central and South America, East Africa and Nagaland in North Eastern India. I strive to offer the best items that I have collected or can find for sale to both the casual and/or discriminating collector of unique cultural items from each of these areas of the world. I also try to focus on vintage, prehistoric, and historic items if I can find them. My interest is in pottery, textiles, art, bronze sculptures, and extraordinary pieces of adornment. Sales are via the internet only. Our business address is 5765 F Burke Centre Parkway, Burke, VA, 22015.

If you like western art, I have the largest collector of Ron Stewart art in the world and am his East Coast gallery. You will find some of his earliest paintings to some of his most recent ones that have not been shown in public. For those of you who like Ron Stewart and his western art, you might be interested in viewing a recently completed video biography of Ron's life at https://vimeo.com/135487381. As noted above, you can check out the largest collection of his art in the US, here at culturalpatina.

In addition, I have the second largest collection of authentic Naga Indian Art in the US. It is all authentic, meaning that it was made by the Naga and used in their cultural ceremonies. The majority of the items shown were collected prior to 1982, when the Naga converted to Christianity and are museum quality.

Culturalpatina also represents 2 of the finest Western Bronze artists in the United States to include James P. Regimbal and Jeff Wolf. Collectively we have some of the largest collections of their work in the US for the beginner to the most sophisticated collectors of this venue.

In addition, if you see something that you really want, but think the price is to much, please give me a call at 703-503-8019 and we can discuss it. I am always open to suggestions.

Cultrual Patina-A Passion Fulfilled

I have had a passion for collecting all things beautiful and unique my entire life and would like to share these items with others having a similar interest. I have representative items from the American South West, Asia, Central and South America, East Africa and Nagaland in North Eastern India. I strive to offer the best items that I have collected or can find for sale from numerous sources to the discriminating collector of unique cultural items from each of these areas of the world. My primary interest is in pottery, textiles, bronze sculptures, and extraordinary pieces of adornment. All sales are via the internet only.

If you like western art, I have the largest collector of Ron Stewart art in the world and am his East Coast gallery. You will find some of his earliest paintings to some of his most recent ones that have not been shown in public.

In addition, I have the second largest collection of authentic Naga Indian Art in the US. It is all authentic, meaning that it was made by the Naga and used in their cultural ceremonies. The majority of the items shown were collected prior to 1982, when the Naga converted to Christianity and are museum quality.

Over the years, I have also been involved in humanitarian work with Lions Clubs International in VA, Africa, Vietnam, and Myanmar. Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world with 1.35 million members, who perform community service in 208 countries and geographic areas and share a core belief: community is what we make it.

Lion Dennis has raised more than $1,000,000 in grant monies and led major service initiatives domestically and internationally, including supporting the founding of a hospital in Kabale, Uganda - helping tens of thousands of people. A percentage of all monies made from the sale of Cultural Patina items will go to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) to help continue Lions work in these areas and others around the world along with helping some of the organizations below.
