You are absolute right, ANYBODY that is duped, no matter the cost, should take issue with the seller. Even for £1. I have and I do! However, surely if one is spending many hundreds of pounds, then they owe it themself to research the piece first. There are sellers who act in the best of good faith. Listing Loetz for example, thinking that it is and without trying to dupe. It is times such as these that we must carry some of the blame, if we buy something only to find out a few weeks later that its not what "we thought." After all, what was it which drew us to the piece in the first place? Surely we do not collect just for price! It is no different perhaps than purchasing a car... We look into it first before handing over the cash. "Try before you buy." I think also that an online facility begining with e, ending in y, has a lot to answer for. If a seller has purposely wrongly listed a piece, it AND THEY should be removed. No if's or but's. There is currently a R Lalique mascot, $20,000 USD. It is genuine and there are many offers being made. ALL of them by collectors. Then again, there are items listed by R Lalique with a starting bid of 99p. These shall not usually sell, because they are not genuine and most will know that. I forget now who said it here, but it is very very true: IF IT LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE< THEN IT PROBABLY IS.... Wise words indeed. I am not here to brag, but I have many R Lalique mascots for example. Not one have I purchased without looking at first, in the flesh. I'd only have myself to blame if I did and I am most certainly not having such a piece sent thrrough the post, in a box wrapped by someone unkown to me. I had a Galle vase arrive once, wrapped in no more than a sheet of newspaper... It is now a Galle Jig-Saw puzzle, back in the hands of the idiot who mailed it to me. What a waste of our history, let alone money.
