They withhold the finest pieces from the open market. and no
one knows how to evaluate their pieces because what you see in the auction results are mostly junk pieces not what is truly available in the market place.
They have lied so much about the true capabilities of the Chinese artisans in every period. And they only want to do business with the victims that have put their trust in them and they're robbing them blind. You must study and know what you are looking at and stop listening to these liars that are telling you all these cock & bull stories about Chinese art. There is a lot of good people that are caught up in their unwritten policies that they have in place and are to afraid to speak up. You must search out the finest pieces, just do the math during the Song Dynasty the population was 100,000,000 in China if just a half of one percent could afford the finest pieces that's a lot of Jade and porcelain made in the Song dynasty. this is why it is imperative that you collect the best possible pieces. You must demand they stop their corrupt policies and start offering the finest pieces on the open market so you will know where your collection fits in the real market place. They must open the market to everyone and stop the discrimination because the way they set this up you can't win because only they know what is really in the market place.
The Ru ware that the National Palace Museum has in there collection are pieces that the Qianlong Emperor wrote poems on and these wares are not the Tribute or Imperial Ru ware that the Song Dynasty Emperor Huizong was receiving from the Ru Kiln. The Ru wares that are in Museums around the world are merchant class wares, not Imperial Tribute or Official Imperial wares. I have also offered donations by email to the British Museum, Philadelphia art Museum, The Cleveland Museum, The Smithsonian Sackler Freer Museum, Metropolitain Museum, etc. and they all didn't answer my email. This is part of the cover-up of Sotheby's sale of the Ru brush washer in Hong Kong April 2012 for $27,000,000. I can prove it is not an Imperial piece and they should return the money and acknowledge what I have shown them all about Ru Wares. Right now their all trying to cover-up the truth about Ru wares. Because the bigger truth is that they're ripping off collectors for billions of dollars by not offering the finest pieces at their auctions and private sales. Major Museums and Universities are the puppets of the auction houses they'll not tell the truth they do whatever the auctions house want them to do. As one example even to the point of withholding the historic truth of the Song Dynasties Emperor Huizong and the Ru Kiln. They have no integrity and sit by and watch collectors being swindled out of their money and do nothing to stop this theft of billions of dollars from unsupecting collectors around the world. And these phony curators worry about their positions being lost. What you see being sold at auction is only a fraction of what is being sold and most of the pieces are junk. One way to stop them is stop buying the junk their offering you.
