I would just like to clarify something about the online auction venture Sotheby's is participating in with Amazon.comPeople should realize that Sotheby's doesn't guarantee unconditionally the authenticity of all the items. What they are doing is inviting dealers to join this adventure. In return, they pay a lower seller's rate than let's say a regular "Joe" submitting an item directly to Sotheby's.Please be careful in making this distinction. In essence, Sotheby's is using its name to attract dealers (who are supposed to be reputable), but ultimately if you bid on something being sold by a dealer, it is the dealer's responsibility to make sure that it is real.Basically, it would be physically impossible for the experts to see every single piece put up on the website. -K
