Authenticity: We sell only authentic midcentury objects. The owner of the gallery picks in India each piece on his own. We buy all objects unrestored, so all traces and important indicators of authenticity are visible. All wooden parts are original. We don’t replace damaged parts by new once or from some other damaged Jeanneret pieces. The patina is very important and during the restoration we try to preserve as much as possible of it. Old cracks, many layers of scratches, old traces of worn lacquer, distortions of the beams or the oxidation of the wood because of peoples touch are important signs of authenticity. There are fakes and Chandigarh objects never have serious provenence papers, so it's smart to buy from experts. We add a “Certificate of Authenticity”.
