We have noticed many suspicious new bronzes
Coming out of a factory in Shanghai China are being
Sold as origin european. The original artists who's pieces are in museums from years gone by are origin Europe but the new stuff is being reproduced in china.
The concern we have as sellers is that they are being
Coated with bronze like materials to the naked eye but
Underneath the bronze like material the material used is inferior and has no resemblance.
Just a word to the eise. Caveat emptor..buyer beware

chinese bronzes

ebay claiming that they protect sellers is BS! Even people in their own customer service know it. To anybody that reads this if you're planning to sell your items on ebay to make extra income you may want to do some research on the non existent seller protection. As a seller you are FULLY dependent on the people you are selling to. Which means if someone leaves you negative feedback for whatever reason you have NO recourse unless you beg the person that left it to take it back. Now most of the people who buy on ebay are ok, most don't even leave feedback which is good. Now everybody knows that for some people that no matter what you do you can't make them happy and they are the ones who WILL leave negative or neutral (which is the same as negative) feedback. If you have more than 5% of combined negative issues like not shipping on time or not packaged a way the customer appoves, ebay punishes the seller by lowering their seller standard which starts off by making you wait 20 days to receive your money AFTER the customer pays. Then they lower how many items you can list. For instance mine went from being able to list over 400 to 185 and the best part is they don't tell you anything. But its probably in the fine print somewhere. Also it doesn't matter how many positive transactions you have, ebay ONLY looks at the negative and punishes accordingly. SO like I said if your planning on investing thousands of dollars in selling on ebay like I did you had better be perfect for at least 95% of the time or you will have your feet swept out from under you like I did. But don't take my word for it just call ebays customer care and they will tell you the same thing. So good luck and happy bidding!

There is no protection for sellers period!

 

God Bless America
By Irving Berlin
 

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:

 

God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.

 

Sing along with me????
