I'm sad that since the fake signatures somehow everything is being questioned. This person was 100% certain commissioned to demolish Tolkien's house and 100% certainly is selling the fireplace that was ordered by Tolkien according to his own wishes. The seller has been in & out of Miramar hotel and there has been speaking with members of the Tolkien family. The offer was indeed made and so far not accepted (because I do have another buyer interested in the lot, but in talks). Why always is it needed to be so negative when it comes to large amounts?
Why doubt the provenance, while all items have been in and out the news before several times. Anyways, I'm going to stop posting on this thread for the time being.

Well I believe he has been in contact with family members and has provenance for the items. Also know several auction houses have already shown interest ... anyways, just a little positive critique.

Don't know but looked like someone bidding on his own items to me.

It has an intro and at least 3 essays by Christopher Tolkien on the topic of Arthur (or are these essays by Tolkien? edited by Christopher? who knows)

I was the one with the 50 + stock indeed! Was crazy not to try... and indeed did work out nicely. Have had that luck several times... am always eager to follow all changes in Amazon to pick up the cheap pre-orders!

Actually I have had people coming over on multiple occasions looking into several things... I'm always happy to have Tolkien friends come over!

I would prefer it to be in Belgium... then I don't have to move to the Netherlands ;)
