[Ancientartifacts] Cypriot jug

Hello all.
For some strange reason I have received no postings regarding the subject item.
Stephen Chruley is partly correct in what I have seen.
The jug has been restored as stated in my CoA. However, I hold that the jug was altered by his application of acetone and is not in the same condition as when it was shipped to him. I also believe he has an ulterior motive in demanding a refund.
When the jug was delivered to him he advised me in an email ......"The piece arrived today and I am very pleased with it. I have been wanting one of these for some time and they don't often appear on the market. Although the handle has been re-attached and there is some restoration to the rim, I think it's a pretty good example for the price. The burnished red colour is lovely.
And there were no Customs charges or VAT!
Thanks again and best wishes."
I hold that Mr. Churley found a jug in better condition that he wanted more then the one in which he expressed so much pleasure and now wants a refund. I will not give him one. And, the jug was in "extremely good condition."
I made no claims that the CoA referred solely to the authenticity and not to condition. I did state that the jug had been restored.
Mr. Chruley is correct in that condition cannot be dissociated from authenticity and that is the reason that both are addressed in my CoA's.
Thank you
Tim, can you explain whey I am not receiving posts?
