Christies acting in abhorrent fashion


What a dispicable act to be exposed. Thank goodness you did the extra due diligence, albeit a buyer would have every right to terminate a purchase after such blatant manipulation of reality in a catalogue illustration / description.

Christies will reap what they sow - misleading, misrepresentative and fictitious cataloguing will only result in destruction of their credibility... totally abhorrent.

Caveat emptor doesnt extend to such malpractice which should shame this established auction house

I would suggest escalating personally to Guillaume Cerutti, CEO of Christie Manson & Woods Limited (parent), at their King St London offices. Would be interesting to hear the Corporate response... Laying off 250 peoiple in 2017 signalled tough times. Such unprofessional actions as this should result in further erosion of business.
