Dear Giovanni,

    I've explained this to you a number of times.
1. 'Hugo Boss' sold the 'fake' to Bloch, and then 'curated' the sale.
Do you honestly believe he would describe a bottle he sold at a high price, as a fake?
Incidentally, I believe the bottle is genuine 18th C. But the calligraphy incised, is modern.

Having seen both yours and the Bloch bottle, I can categorically attest that yours is genuinely Qianlong, and Palace Workshops,x both bottle and incised inscription.

Sadly, you are 100% right, and 100% wrong.
The latter because you insist on ignoring the power of the Market.

Dear Pat, I havent seen your post while posting my last one.
That's exact! For example, I ahve seen a bottle at auction claimed to be very rare. Shown to them the same bottle, not accepted, and no reason added for that.
Kind regards
