“ I am curious as to the history of this (original Ridinger printing) plate (I just bought) and the others you have offered. Did you purchase them from the Ridinger estate (indirectly, indeed) or a private collector? These are truly rare one of a kind pieces ”
In order to make the most recent offers instantly available for you worldwide,
it will not always be possible to place both the English and German descriptions on the web simultaneously.
In these cases the links will refer to the respective available versions.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
Please take note:
The character of the objects presented here, in many cases highly individual or even unique, hardly makes it helpful to quote a price in each case. For quite irrespective of this, undifferentiating comparison leads to misinformation. But that is just contrary to our expectations on the internet. In these cases please get in touch with us for a complete description along with the quote. And, if necessary, ask for all the details elsewhere, too. This way you will not simply buy cheap but really worth the money. A maxim having proved to be true for myself on and on. For by now more than sixty years! It’s the best advice I can pass on to you. For I myself owe it to the legendarily rich, and hence very cautious, American banker J. Pierpont Morgan, “one of the greatest collectors of all times.
He did not want to buy cheap , but good value ,
and purchased only the best which was offered to him ”
(Löffler-Kirchner, Lexikon des Gesamten Buchwesens, vol. II, p. 485). Do it just like the banker! Compare the qualities here with any would-be bargains elsewhere. And then make your choice! I’m sure I can help also you to greater satisfaction.
