Objects already SOLD

Most of these objects were originally described as if authentic.  Most were not.  That was my fault.  I am not an expert and I didn't do the work necessary to become one.  My wife Bobbi brought in three experts, Christophe Rolley of Artheos in France, Edith Mbella of Edith Mbella Gallery in Madrid and Dan Mato from Canada to vet and authenticate my pieces.  Bobbi then established our labelling of all objects as authentic or made for sale.  Because of her and the hard work of our expert friends, the site is now more honest and informative.
