Monart or not ?
« on: August 21, 2014, 08:47:28 PM »
What do other members think of the auctioneer's description of some of the lots as Monart. IMHO lot 253, 257, 259, 260, 261 and 262 are fakes.
I have emailed the auction house voicing my concern on the authenticity of the aforementioned lots.

lots of fakes stand out like a sare thumb, only a few correct pieces in the whole collection, probably someones collection who was unlucky enough and under educated at the time and was fooled in buying these as the real thing back in the eighties/nineties
