In order to create a diverse collection, the owners have traveled extensively worldwide. In addition, they have established an international network of contacts, providing access to estate and inventory liquidations, for their museum and private clients.
Savannah Galleries, founded in 1968 by Daniel Kaminsky and Murray Perlman, native Savannahians, became an extension of a ten year collecting hobby. Mr. Kaminsky is a graduate of Emory University and attended Harvard University and George Washington University Law School. Mr Perlman attended The Citadel and graduated from Spring Hill College. Their interest in fine antique furniture and rare oriental rugs formed the basis of their expertise prior to opening, which expanded to include paintings, silver and decorative accessories.
