Just a quickie........One thing to ALWAYS remember at auctions is that ALL auction companies twist the truth--some are better at concealing their truth-stretching capabilities than others. BUT ALL HAVE BEEN CAUGHT STRETCHING THE TRUTH.
So..........nope my candlesticks were not Matthew Boulton as they had been represented. The moment I picked them up, I knew the truth.
So I called one of the managers and suggested that he give me a credit for the sticks when I returned them on Tuesday........no problem.
Remember: It is buyer beware at auctions--best to preview everything before bidding; but that does not absolve the auctioneer from speaking the truth of an item.
Have a wonderful week-end....
