I have known Alan Landis in a professional capacity for more than 15 years through his work as a valuer to the Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales. Alan is highly regarded as a specialist in British Ceramics after 1700, Australian ceramics, English and Australian silverware and glassware. In undertaking the identification and valuation of a broad range of ceramics, silverware and glassware held at various Historic Houses Trust properties, Alan has demonstrated extensive knowledge and great expertise in these areas, combined with the highest integrity.

A prominent antique dealer in Sydney, Alan Landis has made a substantial contribution of his time, expertise and advice to the Powerhouse Museum over the last two decades. He has been instrumental in identifying a range of British and Australian ceramic objects and Australian colonial silverware which were acquired for the Museum’s collection. Alan has also provided prompt, accurate and objective valuations of ceramics and silverware donated to the Museum under the Cultural Gifts Scheme. His expertise in the areas of Wedgwood, Worcester and Doulton ceramics is particularly impressive. In recognition of his outstanding contribution, Alan was appointed an Honorary Associate to the Powerhouse Museum in 1982 and Life Fellow in 2005.
