Interesting article, but as I stated before, I dont believe at all in so called 'provenance'.  In my view, it is just a way to artificially inflate prices continuously based on 'what someone else paid for it before' or 'who's collection it comes from, or 'where it has been shown, in what museum'..etc.  An item should be judged on shape, taste/preference/bias, feel, artistic merit, rarity, difficulty to produce not these standards listed before. Arguments/discussions/disagreements welcome... Sorry for my two cents worth...
