Question
Dear Mr. Klevit,

You sent me this response:

I have already answered this question for you once before.

But....

You didn't read the last sentence in my second email!
to wit:  

"re-sent as I typed, despite my comment at the head of the letter, my email address wrongly"

My Question was:

Before I bother you with photographs, did Salvador Dali design and make (or cause to be made), for want of a better term, bottle vases?
Am asking on behalf of a non-computer owner who has had one "in same ownership for well over 50 years."

So please may I have the answer you sent to some other SheilaPJ @ the same location but minus the bt! (i.e. I typed SheilaPJ@internet.com)

Sorry to be a nuisance,

Regards,
Sheila Jones

Answer
Sheila--I don't have control over where the response is sent.  I answer within the All Experts system.  Okay, what I said was that I am not familiar with any Dali designed bottle vases.  That doesn't mean one doesn't exist, but there are no records of such, as far as I know.  Lots of bogus Dali stuff out there!  And you are not a nuisance.  Alan Klevit.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
