Authenticity

Authenticity is one of the major issues in the art market as a whole. Despite being a relatively small section of the market in general, the antiquities and historical collectables market is plagued with fakes, many of which can be found for sale online and elsewhere without much difficulty.

All of our pieces come from reputable dealers, collectors and galleries, prior to display or sale all items are carefully inspected by our consultants and experts including Dr. Ivan Bonchev, (Archaeology Phd from Oxford University).
