Well, your agitation is understandable, dear Misha.

So many potential clients around :rolleyes:

As for 

"...absolutely beyond my level..."

This is one striking example of overstatement :lol: 

Kunker piece/Real one




Etc, etc, etc ... 



Concerning  recent statements showing pictures of orders from Kuenker’s auctions without auction and catalogue numbers has to be considered not only to be unfair but also as very unscientific and polemic which should not be the level of such an important international forum in my opinion. My comments concerning the pictures shown in message ID 15: all three pieces shown that there had been offered in Kuenker’s auction 235 (June 2013 – 8804, 8814 and 8815) and were withdrawn from the auction before it’s start. The first picture of message ID 16 shows cat.- no. 1160 of auction 253 which was correctly described as “later non Russian jewellers manufacturing” (those words also in English) and made “only” 4,800 Euros.


You should read this thread more carefully. 

Selling price for 4 items in post #16 was mentioned "in toto" and nobody claimed that pieces in post #15 were sold by Kunker (direct quote "they tried") 


Dear collectors and colleagues of this highly important international forum, I would like to ask you to give your statements with a little more of British fairness. A term “auction full of fakes” to be used with illustrations of only four illustrations of Russian pieces and after all to use an “etc.”  


Since you are asking for more :whistle:

Yes, I was thinking it must be you or somebody from your clique.

My post contained no personal attacks or insults. It was a gentle comic response to this rediculous threatening by "international expert".

Typical selective "Chris-style" moderation with which I am way too familiar  ;)  

It a shame that such unscrupulous person as you are allowed to be a moderator ...


After my last post ...

 Another post deleted that contained explanation of "diamond" set pedigree.

Shocking :o 

What kind of moderation is this anyway?

 I have no objection to material being questioned by collectors if supported by a reasoned argument which is conducted in a civil and courteous  manner.

However the arrogant and somewhat cavalier attitude of the original poster has undermined the worth of the topic and it has therefore been locked.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
