We have been collectors for years. We have never been dealers. This is our first and only shop, and we will sell only items that we believe are authentic. Over the years, we have (on rare occasions) bought something that was not as represented, and learned a few costly lessons. In the unlikely event that an item is not as we believed it to be, then we will of course refund shipping costs as well.
EXCITING NEWS! I have just listed three extremely rare photographs of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page; Neil Young and Frank Zappa (Mothers of Invention). Signed, numbered and dated by noted Rock and Roll photographer Michael Maltese. (Read about him in the listing). Do you have a favorite band from the late 60's and early 70's? Let me know, as Michael is giving me a number of other rare and extremely collectible signed, numbered and dated limited editions. Note that Neil Young's photo is a ONE OF A KIND. No other copies exist or will exist. Frank Zappa's is one of only Two.
MORE EXCITING NEWS: I am listing a number of the finest examples of Bergmann Vienna Bronze from my own private collection.
