May 7th 2010 12:33AM Being an antique's dealer, I found the story amazing especially with the frenzy that was caused during the auction. The actual selling price during the second auction of $95,000 is still higher then I would expect. I noticed in the article that the auction house stated that the box was made by Khlebnikov who worked for Faberge. This was a misstatement, Khlebnikov was the owner of a rival firm, he never worked for Faberge. The box does not bear the mark of Faberge or any of his work masters. If the box was touted as made by Faberge that may have caused the inordinate interest and the crazy prices. Buyer beware and make sure you do your homework before investing in antiques. Research-research- research!
