CERTIFICATES OF AUTHENTICITY

We understand and appreciate your concerns about the authenticity of the art and antiques you purchase and we hope this FAQ will answer your questions.

Honorable Certificates of Authenticity can only be provided by or for an artist who is still alive, of legal age, and able to sign legally binding documents. In allother cases, as we explain in our TERMS OF SALE & CAVEATS FAQ, the authentication of any work by anyone is never 100% certain, and any such statement can only be made as a courtesy to a client, as a professional opinion, and this is subject to change. Our representation of the work we sell is available for every item on its' listing sale page. Each listing page includes descriptions of the work which represent our professional evaluation of it's authorship, quality, merits, and provenance, above and beyond the ways in which the work speaks for itself.

We suggest you print out, and safely store with your other important papers, this online material documenting the sale of any purchase you make, from us or anyone else. This includes, but is not limited to the following documents:

1. Print out a hard copy of ALL the pages listing the item you purchased, on the day you made the purchase, including the final price paid on that day.

2. Store the above information with a copy of any professional invoice, such as the one we send you in the package with your items, when we ship your purchases.  This invoice verifies you paid a specific amount for your purchases. 

3. Store the above information with a printout of the seller's information, such as our  CREDENTIALS page on this site. 

4. Please do read our FAQs; they aren't ads and they provide important information for buyers and collectors of fine things. You may print out copies of this information however the information is copyrighted by us so please do not reprint it without our express permission.

By following the above instructions, you create a custom record for yourself,m documenting the sale and purchase of your piece. This custom record is the most thorough and valid method of creating an honorable "statement of authenticity"

Again, please forgive this impersonal reply. You wouldn't believe how many customers ask us for Certificates of Authenticity without realizing we have already provided all the information you need for this at the time of purchase. This information is already available to you whenever you need it.


We hope this information is helpful to you. Thanks for reading. Merci de votre visite.
