Selling antique and vintage items is not an exact science and a lot of the time it is based on educated guesswork
If there is clear provenance then I will provide it, if not, I will give an opinion expressed with a level of confidence based on my knowledge and experience. I am not so arrogant to assume that I am always correct. I would never deliberately mislead, but, I occasionally get things wrong
For any purchase the buyer should make an informed choice based on the information provided and if they are in any doubt then do not buy it
If an item is new I will indicate this in the description. It is unreasonable to expect antique and vintage items to be in mint condition particularly for well used objects such as tableware
