First Hello and a Question...
« Reply #20 on: September 05, 2006, 02:53:31 AM »
I saw the appraiser and he believes that my vase is authentic; not a reproduction.  :D He gave me a valuation at 15-20 times the amount paid. So, I'm quite pleased. Of course, now that I know how difficult a real Galle cameo is to come by, especially within my budget, I don't really want to part with it  :? Maybe I'll just enjoy it for a while longer before deciding :)
Thank you all for your input and opinions. I really learned a LOT from each of you and am grateful.

Great news, Bidda! 8)  

Apologies for shouting "witch" automatically. :oops:

But you can obviously hear that screaming, when it's the real thing in your mitts! :twisted: Well done! :lol:

Absolutely no apology needed, Chopin :D A little scepticism is healthy and necessary, especially in this kind of collecting because, as we all know, cheats and fakes abound! I'm quite excited, though! I mean, I thought it was real. I FELT like it was real... even though, when I bought it I knew next to nothing about Galle. I'm so glad I went with my gut instinct and didn't chicken out! Yay! (Of course, my gut has steered me wrong before, but we're not going to count those times today; just enjoy this small success and grin like a dope.)

Best,

Bidda

Congrats! Make it your pension fund, but keep an eye open for fashion collapse.

Frank,
if this piece is my pension then I'm in SERIOUS trouble! It's about a decimal or four away from paying off my bills for years but, I'm still quite happy with it. Collapse? You mean that something fashionable right now might not be in a month... or vise versa? ;) Speaking of trends, has anyone else been watching Viking tobacciana lately? Criminey! They're going higher than vintage Murano in some cases!

Have a beautiful day!
