On doing some research, I located a beautiful, rare Daum Nancy scenic table which was to come up for auction in France. I did all my homework, including getting a condition report and made arrangements to bid. The auction house called me the week before to verify that they had my correct phone number. Everything was all set, except for one thing. THEY NEVER CALLED. So they sold the lamp to another bidder for less than I would have paid.
Needless to say, I was very upset. I really wanted this lamp, which I know I could have sold for a good profit. So I wrote to the auction house and asked them to explain. You know what? THEY NEVER ANSWERED.
These kind of things don’t happen at professional auction houses. If they do, at least they apologize. So here’s their information. Euvrard & Fabre, www.euvrard-fabre.com. Write to them and ask them what happened. And certainly don’t ever bid there.
No shows until May when we’ll exhibit at the Chicago Antiques + Art + Design show at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. It’s a beautiful show in a wonderful venue. The dates are May 14-17, 2020. So put it on your calendar and make plans to visit. You’ll thank me.
