It was her father, Santiago Rocamora Moratonas, a great collector of Spanish ceramics in the 30s of the last century, who from a very young age instilled in her a love of art and collecting. Grew up surrounded by very unique objects that made her have that special "eye" to discover unique pieces.
Over the years he created the great collection of perfume bottles that we auction today, a testimony of his patient and passionate dedication.
All the pieces that make up this collection were chosen one by one by her.
