Only tantalizing. I have not spilled any beans yet and will not do so here anymore because of the likes of you. Save your judgement for others.

You only tantilize those who fall for the bait.....I might always be the greatest judge of character...but I know hot air when I see it!

I have a close relationship with Sotheby's and Christie's. Always the insider track...

Discretion is the better part of valour, Eric, so it might be wise to retire before you lose face completely.

The idea that these auction houses would divulge information that is surely confidential is errant nonsense.

As Ashdean correctly suggests, these items will have been utterly dispersed, and some of the buyers will not doubt have expected, and received, complete confidentiality in their purchases of these artifacts.

I would like to add that 'tantalizing' people with information while at the same time proclaiming you will never disclose fully what it is or who you heard it from is rather cruel to posters and counter to the spirit of the Forum. Solid information is what is desired along with relevant facts to back it up.

I think you are mistaken. Auction Houses do give information to those serious scholars who wanted to study some of these objects. Of course the permission had to be given from the buyers, but if agreed, they do give them out. I have worked with them and they only give it to serious researchers. If I give you the impression of them gossiping about, then it was misinformation given.

Perhaps your rather gossipy style gave us the wrong impression.  I am sure that no one doubts your scholarly credentials and am equally sure that we all look forward to any revelations that you may be able to enlighten us with during the course of your undoubted in depth research into the sales of these objects.

Please don't wait too long to share your finds with us.....

I am sorry if I give that impression. I was having a moment with Ashdean (more like a spat). I am generally a very serious researcher beside people that are serious about scholastic information.
