Portugese columns

Michael and Jeanne Bernstein have been traveling throughout South America, Asia, Indonesia, Africa, and Europe where they have unearthed the essence of the Colonial experience in each of these regions of the world. Looking for other Hispanic colonies, we discovered Goa, India, a Portuguese colony established in 15th century.

There we found, in old palaces, homes and buildings, a rich Portuguese, Dutch, French, and English colonial influence in furniture and architectural elements, brought to India between the 16th and 19th century. The old doors, columns, armoires, chests, and tables were reminiscent of the Spanish Colonial traditions we see during our travels to Spain, Mexico, and South America. Come visit us in sunny Tucson or contact us for photos from our inventory of thousands of objects from around the world.
