After reading your blog for a few months and following the antiques sale this week, I would just like to state the following.
Clearly these are nice pieces and one can understand your marketing strategy that includes their history and your relationship with the piece.
However......it is a bit disturbing to have you explain every detail of why the piece should be appreciated and how one might be educated, through your eye, as to how it can be incorporated in to a room.
You are not one of a select group that has ever purchased great pieces or has a creative nature.
Granted, there are plenty of clueless people that would have no idea why a one armed urn is special and desireable. But there are plenty of individuals who do "get it", and not because you told them so. These people will probably be among those that make you an offer for the pieces.
You are not the first or the last to have an eye for design and detail.
Give your readers a little credit.
Stay tuned for my smalls shop...
