Please Enjoy this Note: Following the very rude spamming communication from a potential buyer regarding authenticity of one of my Sevres porcelain collection items ( would not even let my replies to go back to him), in order to prevent future misunderstandings with any buyers, IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand on this Memorial Day, 30 of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-two, declaring to add the following mandatory note to all my current and future Sevres listing item descriptions:
“Not sure if this item is still part of the original order commissioned by a Monarch (meaning kings or the emperor’s, such as Napoleon I, Louis Philippe, Napoleon III, etc) or the augmented part of the royal order, or a later copy made in 19th or 20th centuries, but either way even if and when it is just Sevres “Style” they still are rare pieces of porcelain art. This note is going to be added to all listings even if and when I am 100 % sure they are original ones. Now it is up to a potential buyer to investigate before purchasing and making their own informed decision. Meanwhile, please feel free to share your options and negotiate price by sending me your best offers but be assured that no one can intimidate me to reduce a price on any original or potentially not original items in a rude way.”
