    There are 3 drawings on E bay,which I consider to be highly suspect. I Have contacted the seller and have been fobbed off. Do be very wary.

    Thanks for the warning. I'm always wary of private auctions in the first place as its a way of a suspect seller avoiding people warning a potential buyer.

    Great article, just the type of information that I, and I’m am sure many others like me, have been waiting for.

    Totally agree. The article made great reading and was one of the best posts I've read on this site so far. Keep up the good work.

    Should we have a name and shame section for buyers to check details before engaging in any transactions on ebay etc.
    I've given this some thought over the past couple of days, but don't think it is a starter - it would be hard to maintain; easy for the unscrupulous to abuse (to wrongly promote themselves as 'good traders' or to destroy the reputation of someone they wished to harm); might give people a false sense of confidence (after all, just because somebody has done a good deal in the past, it doesn't mean that all subsequent transactions will be as good) and most of all quite likely to be actionable in law if not provably correct.

    And to be honest, what you are seeking to accompomplish is exactly what the eBay feedback system is supposed to do.

    I think this is a sensible decision as it would only lead to problems (the first example you give is a pretty good one).

    Dear Freded…Mr Harrys club was a well known Plymouth Gay club… lenkiewicz did a painting of it in the 80’s as part of his sexual behaviour project.

    Thanks for the info 😀

    We’ll see over the next few days when the auction ends, but the price seems highly unlikely. More sought after prints such as paper crowns sell for much less than £2000 so I think the seller is being over optimistic, plus have you seen how slow Ebay has been recently? Not much seems to be selling on there recently.

    One reason why it may be slow is that there have been several fake or dubious Lenkiewicz items being sold on there in the last few months. I got my fingers burned by a few "open prints" (I threw one away yesterday as it I started hating looking at it knowing that I ripped off when I bought it) and it would certainly put me off ever buying anything Lenkiewicz related on ebay again.

    Price fixing is, in my view, certainly no worse an offence than selling fake items on ebay, which seems to have been a recent problem on ebay.
    I'd rather pay over the odds for a genuine article than a cheap price for an item that turns out to be fake.

    Looks like he's been suspended. While searching Ebay, I noticed you'd also had your account suspended. Any reason?

    I thought it was worth “bumping” this thread given that one of these “prints” is being sold on ebay at the moment with an attractive BIN price of £40 🙁 I wonder why the Seller has resorted to private auctions!!!!!

    Very well put and just what I was thinking. I'm surprised Esther continues to post when there are these misinformed attacks on her.

    Ricky,
    What you are saying is crazy. It is obvious to anyone with any sense that Esther and the others are not in this for the money, but a passion for Roberts work. I have no doubt the financial details were put on precisely to stop all of this nonsense talk. If Esther was making a claim on the estate would she not simply retire into the background and let a lawyer worry about recovering her money? But no, she is still very much involved...

    If members of this forum continue to post personal attacks on Esther and FM, then anyone associated with FM will simply not bother to look at this site at all.

    I am sure they do not need this at this time.

    Following recent discussions with a couple of members of this great site, I thought it might be worth warning other members to be very careful if you’re buying the less expensive Lenkiewicz items that are advertised on ebay (posters/”open prints”) or on this site. You should be very careful who you buy from and just because somebody is a member of this site, it doesn’t mean that you can trust them (although I’m sure the vast majority of members are very honest).

    There seem to be some sellers who pray on people's lack of knowledge of Lenkiewicz and who are very good at misdescribing items that they are selling.

    Just a word of warning.

    Is this the same poster you've been advertising for sale recently on ebay (which had a picture of your poster in the advert)?

    Steve. Totally agree with you. Dapperchap, post like yours don't add anything to this great site.

    I've just spoken to someone at the Framing Centre (don't know who) while buying the new print-she told me that a Snowy print will be released late next year but they haven't decided how to handle the sale given they have 3500 members on the mailing list and yet there are only 50 signed copies of the Snowy print (apparently its also quite a small image). She confirmed that there are no other signed prints to be released after that-all future releases will use embossed signatures.

    Hope that helps
