I lodged a claim with Paypal re this reproduction vase - and have been asked to provide the following - extract from Paypal email
<<To continue, we need documentation supporting your claim that the item is
Here’s what you need to do.
1. Obtain a document from an unbiased third-party, such as a dealer,
appraiser, or an organization that is qualified in the area of the item in
question (other than you). This document should contain the following:
• Detailed description as to why the item is not authentic (i.e., how the
item differs from an authentic item, how the person evaluating the item
determined that it is not authentic, etc.).
• If possible, the document should include a serial number and must be on
letterhead that includes the name, address, and phone number of the
authenticating party so that we can contact them directly, if necessary. >>
I am not aware of anyone here in Western Australia who could provide the authentication I need, although I will be phoning local auction houses this week once they reopen to ask . Can any of you advise where I may be able to find a third party able to provide such information?
Any assistance appreciated.
