ABOUT THE COLLECTION
As this is all part of my collection, they were intended as things to fill my life with and surround myself in. However, as I stand inundated with these old things, the time has come to say good bye to many.
The description of dyes, origin and other details mentioned in the listing are based on what I know about the piece. I am not an expert scholar and am willing to be corrected. if these factors play an important role in your purchase decision you are encouraged to make your own independent judgement.
This first means, that when I acquired them it was with the intent of holding on to them forever. There was never a plan to buy for the purpose of selling.
Many of these have been selected with care from the land of their origin. As a result I can safely guarantee their authenticity because I know where and how I acquired each one of these pieces. Even the ones that came from dealers, came from experts at the bottom of the supply chain. So I stand by the authenticity of every piece that you see on this site.
The age estimates are informed hypotheses and reflect my opinion - which is formed based on a number of factors. As I cannot be 100% sure of these estimates, I ask that you make your own independent judgement on this factor before purchase.
Barring the items listed as NEW, all the rest of the items are old, pre-owned and must be presumed to be imperfect.
In case they are in perfect condition, a special mention will be made.
